How to Grow Arnica Montana

Growing arnica is an excellent option for those who love rare and exotic herbs.

It is mostly grown for its medicinal properties but its also great for ornamental purposes due to its lovely yellow flowers that appear in spring and summer.

When growing Arnica as a garden plant, it is best suited for a temperate climate zone, usually a recommended USDA zone of between 4 and 9.

Since the plants prefer higher elevations and temperate climates, warm, coastal climates can sometimes not be ideal for growing them though this is not entirely impossible.

Arnica is usually propagated from seeds, but it can also be grown by a division from the root of an existing plant.

I transplanted the Feverfew into the dirt because they had outgrown their spot in the raised bed, and protected them with gopher cages. The rodents were *pissed.* 🤣

These are in full flower now, and while we’ve had a lot of burrowing activity, I’m happy to report both plants are still standing.

Hello From the Void

We’ve had a bit of a rough year over here at tggardens, about half of what I’ve raised from seed and transplanted outside has been eaten by some sort of bird or squirrel. :/ Between that and going back to volunteering at a Renaissance Faire for several weekends I haven’t really been doing the best at defending my crops, and it’s been a bit disappointing. We have plans to erect physical barriers to block the wildlife, but that is going to take both time and money that need to go elsewhere for the next couple of weeks. This blog is not dead, and I will work on getting some pictures up in the next few days of what hasn’t been eaten yet, but the big kicker was that those gorgeous cucumber vines were eaten down to the nub *the next day after I planted them and took the pictures.* Disappointing.

On the other hand, this has primarily been a place for pictures of plants, and I doubt anyone is “getting attached” to the plants in the same way I am. We have a relatively mild climate for our area despite a weird year (which seems to be hitting everyone across the US, and probably the rest of the world as well). It might be July, but there’s plenty of time to start seeds going into autumn. Half the point of gardening is trying again when things don’t quite go our way. And half the reason I garden is to bring birds and other wildlife into the yard so we can look at them, so I can’t really begrudge them the nibbles they’ve been taking.

Anywho, we will begin again. And again. And again. Wish us luck!
