Meadow arnica plant
Click and Collect Only
From Falkland, Fife
Available to pre-order
A hardy perennial that prefers a sandy, acid soil and sunny position. It grows 30-60cm high and spreads 15cm flowering yellow from June on wards.
In herbal medicine it is used externally for treating bruises, sprains and muscular pain. It is used internally in homeopathic quantities for shock.
I pick the flowers in early summer to make an infused oil and balm for external use.
