The romance of wormwood is *gone*

Postby sugarcreek » Sun Jul 20, 2014 3:29 pm

Last spring I purchased three small plants of roman wormwood (Artemisia pontica) for my herb garden. I carefully tended them all summer and even mulched them last fall in anticipation of a hard winter. Well let me tell you, the romance is gone. It's just shy of mint in it's invasiveness. Those small three plants of grown into a four foot mound and has overtaken half the herb garden. I'll be culling the plot this fall if anyone wants some. Caveat emptor!

Sounds like a good candidate for a pot.

I don't think you can smoke wormwood. Oh, planting in a pot...

Everyone warned us about having bamboo in our yard. We have managed to contain it by planting it in plastic pots in the ground...that worked for about eight years before the stuff escaped...I just mow new sprouts and it stays in it's boundary.

Empty yer boiler hot slops on it. That'll kill anything. I even killed a 30-foot high strangler fig tree doing that. :)

Boy howdy, ain't that the truth! Around here stuff grows outta control. You can jam a broomstick in the ground and grow a broom tree.

I call my hot slops "Poor Man's Roundup".
