Description

BROADLEAF PLANTAIN (Plantago major), is one of the most abundant and widely distributed medicinal crops in the world. A poultice of the leaves can be applied to wounds, stings, and sores in order to facilitate healing and prevent infection. The active chemical constituents are aucubin (an anti-microbial agent), allantoin (which stimulates cellular growth and tissue regeneration), and mucilage (which reduces pain and discomfort). Plantain has astringent properties, and a tea made from the leaves can be ingested to treat diarrhea and soothe raw internal membranes. The only safe way to use this crop is to grow your own to be sure no pesticides, animal waste, etc have been applied. Easy to grow from seed and proliferates happily! Perennial in zones 4-8. 100 Seeds.

MEDICINAL & CULINARY: As with many plants which modern science deemed "noxious weeds" more is being discovered all the time about this wonderful herb. In ancient times, the leaf juice was used to cleanse and heal wounds, treat fevers, and clear lung congestion and it is still used today for throat and skin inflammations. Beekeepers grow near their hives as the chewed leaves applied provide instant relief for stings. And whether eaten or steeped in alcohol and sprayed on, many claim it keeps ticks at bay. Plantain is rich in B, A, C and K vitamins and many healthy compounds including iridoids, flavonoids, polysaccharides, plant acids such as fumaric and benzoic acid, fatty acids such as oleic acid, ursolic, phosphoric and chlorogenic acids. It also contains the trace minerals zinc, iron and calcium. It is also eaten raw in salads or cooked as a pot herb.

GROWING TIPS: Sow directly outside after danger of frost has passed. The foliage grows larger when given some shade. It is a very hardy plant that withstands mowing and foot traffic.
