Product Description

Grow Heirloom Herbs - Plant Marshmallow Seeds

Yes, this is the plant responsible for the sticky sweet treat we all know and love. The sugary confection has been made from the root of the Marshmallow plant since ancient times! Today, no s'more is complete without one, and we think no garden should be either! A lovely, ornamental plant in addition to its medicinal and culinary properties, Marshmallow is a perennial shrub that offers large, pale pink blooms on erect plants with large green leaves.

  • Planting Instructions

    Marshmallow herb plants prefer moist soils and germinate in cooler temps.  Fall planting in cold temperatures aid in the germination of Marshmallow herb seeds.  If starting Marshmallow seeds indoors, a period of cold stratification is needed - place the herb seeds in moistened peat moss, and place in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 weeks.   Keep moist and check frequently.  When seeds germinate, transplant immediately.

    After stratification, seeds are best started indoors for a few weeks before transplanting outside in mid to late spring.  Keep germinating seeds moist, and transplant to larger containers, gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.  Transplant outdoors in mid to late spring.

    Once established, the Marshmallow plant is known to self-seed but not in an aggressive way.
