Item details

This listing is for 30 seeds from the Pokeweed plant, Phytolacca americana. Pokeweed is a native perennial that was a very important food source in history and a regular item of commerce, even being exported to Europe by the American colonists. According to Benjamin Franklin the plant is a cure for cancer, but we now know that this couldn't possibly be true ;-). The plant prefers to grow in full sun and can tolerate some very poor soils.

Planting Instructions - The seeds require stratification and might benefit by allowing the seeds to go through several freeze/thaw cycles. Plant the seeds in an area of dappled shade, just under the surface, in an acidic to basic loamy sand. The seeds could be pretreated with sulfuric acid to aid germination.

Free Shipping Special - I will provide free shipping for all seed orders totaling $20.00 or more, and this includes both domestic and international orders. This shipping special applies to seed sales only. To obtain this free shipping offer I will have to refund the shipping costs that you pay.
