Waldmeister (Sweet Woodruff) 4/20/17

I have tried to grow Sweet Woodruff from seed for the past three year but could never get them to spout much less grow.  A couple of months ago I found a company, The Growers Exchange , that has them already started.  I ordered them a few weeks ago and they finally came in the mail yesterday.

They came well packaged and looked great.

I put them in the ground right away.  The directions tell you to plant them within four days.

 This one I’m saving to give to my Mom.

I remember having Waldmeister Jello, topped with Vanilla sauce, in Germany when I was a kid.  When these plants bloom, I’m sure it will bring back a lot of fond memories.
I found a few recipes on Nadia Hassani’s blog, Spoonfuls of Germany , that I’m going to try out.
