The meadowsweet is easy to care for, but not undemanding. If it is in the right place, the numerous tiny yellowish white flowers fill the air with their sweet fragrance every summer from June to August.
Meadowsweet feels particularly at home in wet meadows, along ditches or on the banks of streams. It likes semi-shady to sunny places with a slightly moist loamy soil, which nevertheless does not form waterlogging. If you place the plant on the balcony, then avoid fully sunny places and use a sufficiently large pot.
The best location tips for meadowsweet:
- semi-shady to sunny
- slightly moist
- no waterlogging
- protected from the wind
- on the balcony not in full sun
You can use true meadowsweet as a seasoning herb for desserts, game or fish dishes. With the sweetish flowers you refine fruit salads or compote. Caution: Do not use during pregnancy or in case of hypersensitivity to salicylic acid.
