Althaea Officinalis
HERB-MARSHMALLOW is an extremely valuable & easy-to-grow medicinal plant. It soothes irritated mucous membranes in the digestive tract/lungs, & gives relief to a sore throat. The leaves & flowers are used but are considered to be less medicinally potent. As an added bonus, marshmallow is a striking beauty in the garden, up to 2m tall in fertile soil, with ample pink & white flowers of 2.5 -5cm that bees love. African native. The original source of an Egyptian confection which evolved into today’s marshmallows. The roots & velvety leaves have been eaten as a vegetable for centuries, often fried with onion & garlic.

Mix seeds with moist but well-drained starting medium in a large zip lock bag & place in the fridge. If seeds start to germinate, transplant immediately. After stratification, seeds are best started indoors for a few weeks before transplanting outside in mid to late spring. Keep germinating seeds moist, transplant to larger containers, gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions. Perennial

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
