The Marsh Labrador Tea (also Rhododendron tomentosum) is an evergreen shrub that reaches 0.5 to 1.5 metres and preferably grows in moors and peat soils.

Its leaves are full of essential oil, which was used for the brewing of beer in the past and intensified the effect of the alcohol. Furthermore, it was mixed with bog myrtle to brew the famous gruit ale.
Its leaves are slightly poisonous and, today, are only used in folk medicine, e.g. against insect or tick bites, anymore. It's also suitable for fumigation as its leaves exude a slight camphor scent. A long stay in a field with Labrador tea is said to have an intoxicating effect because of its scent.
Due to the drainage of moorlands, it has become very rare.

Poisonous plant
Maize can be precultivated indoors which considerably increases the yield. Otherwise, simply sow from mid-April directly outdoors. The seeds should be planted about 2-3 cm deep and the distance between the individual corn stalks should be around 45 cm. When sown in "blocks", plants thrive better than in single unprotected rows. Hint: why not try intercropping with beans, according to Indian tradition? The corn serves as a climbing aid for stalk beans and these, in turn, accumulate nitrogen in the soil. In order to harvest your own seed, select the earliest and most beautiful cobs and harvest these as late as possible. Also, keep in mind that the wind carries maize pollen for almost a mile, so if you live close to a cornfield, there's a real danger that your Golden Bantam hybridizes with genetically modified maize!

On the website of the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety ( you will find a location registry with all areas where genetically modified plants are grown. Also, visit the website of the Aktion Bantam Mais with further information about the topic.
