This is the first episode of my new mini-show called Useful Plant of the Week. In this ongoing series I will discuss the particulars of a useful plant (not just for food!).
This week I discuss the Dalmation Chysanthemum, a flower that is grown in many parts of the world and harvested for use as Pyrethrin, a powerful but (mostly) safe organic pesticide that I use (rarely, when without other options).
I hope you enjoy this show. As always, I am open to suggestions for which plants you’d like to hear me talk about. Just leave comments below.
