Milk Thistle
Increasingly popular medicinal herb.
Large plant with shiny, spined leaves mottled with white. Outstanding, solitary, 2" purple flowers. All parts are edible. Medicinal: The active component, silymarin, is found in the seeds and is known for its liver rebuilding properties.


SOWING: Direct seed (recommended): Sow seeds in early spring or late fall, about 4 seeds per foot. Seed requires light to germinate, so cover very lightly with soil. The final spacing for the plants should be 24-36" in rows 3' apart as they grow quickly to a large size. Milk thistle is prickly, so it is recommended to wear gloves when thinning or hand-weeding.
