Growing Hypericum Hidcote

Any well drained soil is fine, in sun or partial shade. If your soil is poor, improve it well with compost, and it will thrive. In the North and Scotland, it likes shelter from harsh winds: if it gets too battered in winter, it may die back to the ground and regrow in spring, but that should only happen in a really severe year.

Did You Know?

One of many plants named for Hidcote Manor (Hidcote Lavender is another), which was bought by the rich American Mrs Gertrude Winthrop in 1907. The splendid gardens were designed by her son, Major Lawrence Johnston, from 1910.

Wort is from the Old English wyrt, roughly meaning any plant that is a useful herb or vegetable. The name St. John's wort is first recorded in the 1400's; it begins flowering around the summer solstice in late June, and June 24th is the feast of St John the Baptist.

It has been used medicinally forever: the Roman army was using it since at least the first century, and Paracelsus was a big fan of it in the Renaissance era. It is known to soothe depression and exhaustion, and studies show that bullets forged with it in the furnace will unerringly hit their target six out of seven times.
