Could you please tell me when to harvest Sweet Annie? I would like to use it to make wreaths. What is the best method of drying? Thanks, Francie

Sweet Annie, Artemisia annua, is harvested when the floral buds are at their maximum size (we call them beads) but before they actually open. It is very important not to wait too long. If a few of the plants open and show that characteristic yellow color (pollen), then you know you must pick it immediately and those plants that have open will not dry as well.

The other consideration, is if you do not pick it at all, you will have Sweet Annie everywhere ... I mean everywhere!

Good luck and enjoy the scent!
