Magic Garden Seeds


The common cowslip is a very decorative flowering meadow flower. Since time immemorial it has been used as a medicinal herb for colds and gout. The cowslip primrose, as it is also called, is also one of the magical herbs. In popular belief, it is
used to gain protection and fertility and is part of many love spells. This may certainly be because that it blooms very early in the year, around April or May. Around May 01, there are many folk customs that revolve around the theme of fertility.

The young leaves can be used in salads. The flowers are edible and therefore a very nice decoration for dishes. With the flowers you can also naturally colour your easter eggs. Simply cook some cowslip flowers together with your eggs in hot water. Wild cowslips are threatened with extinction.

Package with approx. 200 cowslip seeds

Growing instructions

Cowslips are best sown in the autumn directly outdoors or in seed trays. They need cold to germinate and require a planting distance of about 25 cm. They also multiply by themselves and are therefore very suitable for naturalizing.
The common cowslip loves semi-shaded areas with nutrient-poor and well-aerated soil. It thrives very well under trees or on rough pastures.

Für mich die schönsten Frühlingsboten!

Toll, dass man hier Samen für die Schlüsselblume bekommt! Ich habe sie jetzt erst entdeckt und deswegen lieber mit ein bißchen Perlite im Druckverschlussbeutel für ein paar Wochen in den Kühlschrank verbannt. Mittlerweile stehen sie ausgesät in Töpfen im kühlen Wintergarten und beginnnen bereits vereinzelt zu keimen. Klappt ausgezeichnet.
