Self Heal, Heal All, or Prunella Vulgaris, is a member of the mint family, Lamiaceae. It's a hardy perennial down to zone 3, but can be grown as an annual just about everywhere else. It thrives in many different environments but prefers to have good sunshine, and a decent amount of moisture in the soil. Full sun is recommended for the healthiest plants, but it can live in partial sun too.


The flowers and leaves from this plant are used to make a very useful medicinal tea. As well as being medicinal, the flowers and leaves make a great edible addition to salads and soups. The flowers are also a great source of nectar, and attract bees and other pollinators alike. Planting prunella anywhere near the garden will therefore increase pollination of crops and other plants in the area, and come high summer, you’ll be gifted with a beautiful display of showy purple flowers.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Prunella Vulgaris seeds may be started in pots in the spring, or directly sown into the ground. If sown indoors, it's good to cold stratify them in the refrigerator for a couple weeks before planting them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 6°C or higher. When sown this early in the season, the plants are able to put out an abundance of flowers in the first year. Once transplanted and established, These plants will live for many years assuming you live in zone 3 or warmer. The plants don’t require very much attention once established other than yearly mulching, a bi-weekly watering, and a clipping back to the ground in the winter. These plants are quite vigorous, and just a few of them can provide you with a full winter supply of medicinal tea. Prunella Vulgaris is resistant to deer, pests, drought, and flood; It’s a very robust plant.
