Sow feverfew seeds indoors or under glass from February to July. Sow seed in pots or trays on the surface of barely moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost or vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 15-20C (64-68F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination which takes 10 - 30 days.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise feverfew plants to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors. Plant feverfew at a distance of 30cm (12") apart on any well drained soil in full sun.

Once established feverfew requires little aftercare, and only occasional watering during particularly dry periods. Harvest feverfew flowers and leaves as required throughout summer. Feverfew self-seeds freely if the flowers are not harvested. If seedlings are not required, deadhead faded flowers regularly.
