You’re surrounded by nature: the rustling of tall grasses, the heady smells of various herbs and wild milkweed blooms, the soft whisper of flowers in full bloom— all playing a symphony just for you.

Common Milkweed Plants For Sale – In A bottle! Milkweed Fragrance
Milkweed blooms have one of the most beautiful floral aromas on the planet and yet it has not been discovered by many. Perhaps it’s because it has the name of a common weed. It is considered a “weed” and how could a weed ever have much to offer? And yet milkweed pods contain nectar which nourishes the monarch butterfly and at the same time can throw a floral scent on the breeze to rival jasmine, lilac and rose!
The milkweed perfume that I make requires me to walk
the summer fields with my basket and shears. To harvest blossoms hosting monarch butterfly’s. What a way to spend an afternoon! It’s a tough job…. But the resulting milkweed plants for sale and artisan perfume makes it well work it.

Plant Milkweed In Soil Or Outdoors
Milkweed seed can be planted directly in soil, or started indoors. You can sow milkweed seeds by scattering them on the soil surface 1/4-1/2 inch apart, and then cover them with about 1/4 inch of additional soil. Water the area frequently after planting until plants become established. Many species need to be vernalized (cold treated) before planting. Vernalized seeds can be planted in the spring after the danger of frost has passed. Non-vernalized seeds can be planted in the fall. See Monarch Watch’s milkweed propagation guide
