RUE - 50 Seeds

(Ruta graveolens)

Rue has value as an insect repellent and is even said to repel dogs and cats, who don’t like the smell. Plant the rue bush directly where insects (or dogs and cats) are a problem or use the dried leaves where needed, for example, to repel moths in cupboards. Leaves can be picked at any time for use as an insecticide infusion or dried for later use. Rue is also used in soaps, fragrances and culinary flavourings. 

Due to the insect repelling qualities of rue, the plant can be useful planted near roses, or fruiting plants, like raspberries, to keep insects away. Rue does not like basil. 

Rue is used in salads, or sandwiches, in small amounts. It may also be used to flavour herbal vinegar.

Propagation notes will be supplied with a seed packet.
