Please note: I do not post my plants / products. All prices shown on this website do not include delivery. I offer a delivery service within the Perth metro area for $15 per order. You are welcome to collect your plants / products from me in Kalamunda at no charge.

You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.


Artemisia lactiflora. 3.7L coir pot.

This hardy perennial isn’t as invasive as its relative Mugwort (A. vulgaris).

It offers small, creamy-white flowers.

The plant enjoys a full sun to part shade position in rich, moist, well draining soil.

It’ll grow to about 1.3m in height but it can be cut back to create a shorter, bushier plant.

White Mugwort is used in Asian cooking. You can add the young stems to salads and the leaves can be cooked as a vegetable. When taken as a tea, it is said to improve digestion.
