This page gives instructions on how to buy rue seeds from David's Garden Seeds.


Rue is a lacy blue-green ornamental.  Bushy habit is ideal for short hedges or borders. Pungent aroma. Limited culinary use due to strong bitter flavor. Medicinal: Warming herb primarily used as an antispasmodic. CAUTION: Can be toxic when taken internally. Handling the fresh herb can cause skin irritation.

CAUTION: Can be toxic when taken internally. Not for pregnant women. Consult a qualified medical practitioner before using. Handling the fresh herb can also cause skin photosensitivity.

Transplant (recommended): Sow seeds 1/4- 3/8" deep in cells or flats about 7 weeks before the last frost. Keep moist and warm, 60-70°F. When large enough to handle, thin or transplant to larger cells. Grow inside until several inches tall, and then transplant outside to rows that are 18" apart, placing seedlings 12" apart in the North and 24" apart in the South.

Direct seed: In the spring, sow 6-12 seeds per foot, 1/4- 3/8" deep, in rows that are 18" apart, and later to a final spacing of 12-24" apart. Keep well weeded until the plants are large enough to compete well with the weeds.

Latin Name: Ruta graveolens

Ready to harvest in about 125 days.
