Tanacetum pathenium aureum
Feverfew has white, daisy-like flowers. The leaves are said to help control migraines. Feverfew’s success in combating migraines may be due to its accumulative effect in reducing muscle spasms, implicated in many forms of migraine. Best consumed in a weak tea infusion.
Can be grown indoors if kept cool, in a sunny or semi-shady spot. Trim and tidy the plant once the flowers have finished in the autumn. A powerful herb, avoid if pregnant.
Single herb plant in a 15cm Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer. Planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
