Plant in early spring after danger of frost has passed. Best to first plant indoors in a warm, sunny environment and transplant in late spring. Transplant when seedlings are around two inches tall.
Seeds can take up to 3 months to germinate and once established can re-seed quickly. St. John's Wort is perennial and therefore will bloom in the second year after initial planting.
Harvest in late July and August when flowers are in full bloom. Both the leaves and flowers can be harvested. Cut off the upper 1/3 portion of the plant in July for harvest. Dry flowers and leaves in bundles upside down in a cool, dry place indoors. Store in an airtight glass container for up to one year.
