Mullein

NZ $2.95

Description

Mullein is a medicinal herb that's been in use for thousands of years, mainly to treat coughs and respiratory conditions but also as a poultice topically for wounds, burns and skin infections. The dried yellow flowers and leaves have a slightly earthy, mildly bitter taste, but can make a pleasant tea when sweetened with honey. Safely drink 3 to 4 cups a day. It's biennial, forming a rosette of soft woolly grey leaves the first year before growing a tall flowering spike the second season. Prefers loose, poor soil to grow in.

Matures second season from transplant.
