Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) Herb in 1 litre Pot 

Native to Europe and Britain, Valeriana officinalis is a hardy perennial that grows to 1.5m tall, and produces heads of sweetly scented white to soft pink flowers which bloom in the summer months, being rich in nectar they are attractive to pollinating insects.  It has soft mounds of aromatic, finely divided foliage, and its natural, billowing habit makes it ideally suited to wild planting schemes.

Other names used for this plant include Garden Valerian (to distinguish it from other Valeriana species), Garden Heliotrope (although not related to Heliotropium) and All-heal.

Valerian prefers to grow in a sunny position, and will cope in any soil, although it does prefer some moisture, and once established, it will self seed readily - remove seed heads after flowering to stop it becoming too prolific.

Herb usage

Valerian was used as a perfume in the sixteenth century. The roots have traditionally been used in herbal medicine and are processed and used medicinally as an aid to sleep.

CAUTION: NOT TO BE TAKEN WITHOUT MEDICAL SUPERVISION

  1. A very showy blousy plant 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2019

    I received this plant in excellent condition albeit a bit younger than the ones I usually receive from Hooksgreen Herbs. So far so good and I have planted it towards the back of my border to attract pollinators and bees etc as it will be in the sun most of the day. It was well packed as usual and although as I said it appears not to be quite as established, I am hoping it will survive the winter and will flower it’s head off next year. This plant does look nice and healthy however, but if we have a hard winter I will try and protect it from any harsh elements.
