Cleaver Seeds - Galium Aparine - Wild & Medicinal

Quantity: 30 Seeds


Cleavers, aka Galium Aparine, is an annual member of the coffee family, Rubiaceae. These plants thrive in many different environments, but prefer to live in a location that receives partial shade, and a moderate amount of moisture in the soil throughout the growing season. Cleavers are covered in tiny barb like hairs, so they can easily attach themselves to anything that they touch, much like velcro. In the spring, the tender young plants can be eaten in soups and other dishes too, but the best way to use this herb is to consume the leaves as a medicinal tea or tincture. Medicinally, Cleavers are high in minerals and vitamins, and they have constituents that also make them great for cleansing the lymphatic system. It's good to consume this plant in the spring to help cleanse and renew the system.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

    Cleavers seeds germinate easily, and it's best to directly sow them in the earth. In the early spring or autumn, sow the seeds 1/8 - 1/4 inch below the soil surface. The plants don’t require very much attention other than making sure that the soil stays consistently moist. These plants are quite vigorous, and once established, just a small patch of plants can provide you with a full supply of medicinal tea. Cleavers are resistant to deer, pests, drought, and flood.
