Blue Mallow (Malva Sylvestris) 80 seeds (#900)

Malva sylvestris is a species of the Mallow genus. It’s also called “common mallow” and “high mallow” or “tall mallow.” Pretty, bright, and typically some shade of purple, it’s long been used as an emollient.
A very easily grown plant, succeeding in ordinary garden soil.
Today, malva has found new popularity as a soothing and softening ingredient in sensitive skin formulations. Particularly good for inflamed and irritated skin, malva flowers make a great addition to five of my skin care products.
Native to Western Europe, North Africa, and Asia, malva sylvestris has showy purple flowers with dark veins, and usually stands about 1,50-1,80 m high.
A perennial plant, it likes to grow in fields or along roads and railroad tracks, and typically branches out and flowers in early summer. The flowers themselves grow in clusters of two to four, with a fringe of hair like projections.
Historically, people liked using malva flowers to spread on doorways and weave into garlands for celebrating May Day. Today, malva is enjoyed in containers and as a border plant in flower gardens.Malva has a reputation for being soothing because its leaves contain a high level of plant “mucus,” making them perfect for use in a tea to soothe bronchitis, emphysema, sore throat, and cough. The tea also has a reputation for soothing stomach problems and calming intestinal inflammations, and is still used today to soothe these digestive and respiratory problems.
The leaves and flowers also contain tannins, flavonoids, and vitamin C, all protective antioxidants that can help strengthen the immune system. Traditional uses of the herb also include the treatment of gallstones, kidney stones, kidney inflammation, headaches, and toothaches. A warm malva compress could help cool superficial burns and relieve mouth sores, as the leaves contain mild pain killing properties and help protect from infection and drying.
A very easily grown plant, succeeding in ordinary garden soil and in poor soils. It prefers a reasonably well-drained and moderately fertile soil in a sunny position. Plants are hardy to about -20C]

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Start mallow seeds in a greenhouse or indoors in winter or early spring.
Use a premixed, peat-based compost, or create a custom-blend seed-starting compost by combining four parts compost with two parts sphagnum peat moss and one part each vermiculite and perlite. Use individual 7 cm pots to start zebra mallow seeds, pressing one seed 3 mm deep in each pot.
Keep the seeds in a sunny window or greenhouse with a temperature between +20-+22C until they germinate.
