Re: uses --Feverfew?


Re>> I think it has pyrethrum in
it.<<

Tony,
Pyrethrum comes from Tanacetum coccineum, commonly called Painted
Daisies. I seem to remember that the plants grown specifically for
collecting the ingredient are only in a special location somewhere in
Africa - something about the soil. Actually, Painted Daisies once went
by the genus name Pyrethrum. I suppose Feverfew has some other noxious
ingredient that bothers bugs.

Eva - I have it all over my yard here in the NW. I let it grow near  & in
between my veggies. It seems to deter pests. I think it has pyrethrum in
it.
I heard some people make a brew of it for migraines???????

If you have weeds, you don't have enough plants.
