Sweet Woodruff

$2.50

Galium odoratum

Today, sweet woodruff is most commonly seen as a ground cover for shady areas. It was previously used for its fresh smell of the leaves and as an air freshener.  It is hardy in zones 4-8.  Sweet woodruff spreads by sending out runners.

Growing information: Seeds can be planted directly outdoors after the danger of frost has passed or started indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost.  To start indoors spread the seeds evenly in containers and cover lightly with peat moss. Water, then keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.  Keep moist during that period, then place the containers in a cool, lit area, around 50F.  Once the seedlings have emerged, you can move the seedlings to a warmer location.  Transplant outdoors in a shaded area.  Keep in control by edge trimming.

Min qty/packet: 50 seeds
