VIPER'S BUGLOSS SEEDS
Created in collaboration with Manchester Art Gallery, our range of seeds is inspired by the wild flowers of Dungeness, bringing its magical landscape to your own garden.
VIPER'S BUGLOSS (Teucrium scorodonia): “Once considered to be a preventative and remedy for viper bites. It is related to borage, Borago officianalis, and has many similar actions, especially in its sweat inducing and diuretic effect. It has however fallen out of use due to its content of pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are toxic in isolation.”
CULTIVATION: Sow from February-May or August-November in pots in a cold frame or on a warm border. Germination usually occurs within 2-3 weeks at 15°C. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots & plant them out in the summer.
