Wild mallow, musky mallow… Here are some wild plants to welcome in your garden, not only for their beauty, but also because they are medicinal, edible and attract useful insects and birds!

Their culture :

Plant the mallow bought in a bucket from March to May or from September to October, in the ground or in a pot.

It is possible to :

- Sow the mallow in a box, in partial shade.

- Plant it in the ground, in ordinary, but well-drained soil, in the sun. It resists drought well and supports poor soils.

- Plant it in a pot, in the sun, in a substrate made up of potting soil and garden soil.

Their harvest:

From June to October, in the morning, harvest the leaves and flowers, both to cook them and to use them as medicinal plants.

Here are some of the benefits:

- Relieves mouth and throat problems

- Calms internal and external ailments

- Soothes irritations of the skin and mucous membranes

Their conservation:

In the kitchen and for health, use the flowers as quickly as possible. The leaves, washed and rolled in a damp cloth, can be kept for 3 days in the refrigerator.

To use them in winter for health, dry the stems, upside down, in a dark, dry and ventilated room.

For decoration, if you want to keep your bouquet as long as possible, as soon as you pick it, put the branches in a bucket of water, the stems should be completely soaked. Store this bucket in a dark, cool room. A few hours later, compose your bouquet, after having pruned the stems of a few centimeters and removing all the leaves likely to soak in the water of the vase.

This cold-resistant, fast-growing, low-water-need flower will be perfect for anyone who doesn't have a green thumb and is looking for plants with easy maintenance!

At your shovels!
