HELLO, I WILL BE AWAY FROM THE 27TH NOVEMBER TO THE 4 DECEMBER. ALL ORDERS FROM THIS PEROID WILL BE POSTED ON THE 4-5 DECEMBER.
ACONITUM ANTHORA 'YELLOW MONKSHOOD'
Ranunculaceae: an herbaceous perennial with an erect, sparingly-branched stem 1m tall, an underground tuber. Found on European mountains. The flowers are pale yellow and hooded. Blooming from July-August. The leaves are more dissected than most aconitum sp. Native to the Alps and the Carpathians, and the northern parts of Asia.
The root contains a large amount of volatile salt and essential oil, while the foliage and stems contain diterpenoid alkaloids. It has been used externally against rheumatism and deep pain, but it can irritate the skin. Internally, it has been used for weak pulse, vegetable poisons (shoot), feverish colds, pneumonia, croup, heart conditions, and cardiac arrest.
Thrives in most soils, but prefers a moist calcareous soil in sun or semi-shade. Plants will only thrive in a sunny position if the soil remains moist throughout the growing season.
Seed is best sown in the autumn, but the seed can be stratified and sown in spring but will then be slow to germinate. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a cold frame for their first winter. I find GA3 [Gibberellic acid] and a short cold spell works well]
[NOTE: SEEDS WILL ONLY GERMINATE IF SEEDS ARE SUBJECTED TO TEMPERATURES BELOW -7˚C]
