How to Grow & Harvest Rue

 


When to Plant

Rue seeds need a soil temp of at least 70°F for germination. It grows best when started indoors and then transplanted outside after all danger of frost has passed. 

 

How to Plant

Rue is a wonderful beginner gardeners plant, because it doesn't require much over seeing. 

 

When to Harvest

Harvesting fresh leaves can cause dermatitis in sensitive people.  On hot sunny days, this is especially true because that is when the essential oil is strongest. Take precaution when harvesting and do not consume if you are pregnant.
