Thanks to its strong aromatic flavour, many consider Tansy to be useful only as a natural insect repellent; a plant or two in the kitchen will reduce the number of flies who will visit! Around the house it is probably better to tie and hang bouquets of dried flowers or foliage (or both); these will not only keep flies away but also ants, and even moths (so perfect for the clothes cupboard).

But with a flavour similar to Rosemary it is also a versatile kitchen herb that can be used with sweet and savoury dishes alike.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Hardy perennial.
  • Grows to approximately 2-4 feet (60-120 cm) tall.
  • Prefers full sun to light shade.
  • Doesn't like to sit in wet ground, but likes a moist, well-draining soil.
  • Dark green leaves which are 'toothed'.
  • Has flat umbels of golden-yellow buttonlike flowers.
  • Flowers July - September.
  • Will spread quite vigorously.
  • Plant out 3 feet (90 cm) apart.
  • Roots can be divided in spring or autumn.
  • Can self seed.
  • Culinary Uses.
  • Leaves can be stewed with rhubarb.
  • Tasty rubbed onto meat, like rosemary.
  • Can be used to flavour sausages, omelettes, meat pies and stuffing.
  • Medicinal Uses.
  • Can help with bruising, rheumatism, varicose veins and sprains.
  • Can be used to expel worms.
  • Other Uses.
  • The flowers can be dried to become 'everlasting' flowers!
  • Will repel insects, so can be good planted near fruit trees, or hung indoors.
  • The leaves contain insecticide that can deter mice, ants, fleas and flies.
  • If the flowers are boiled they will produce a lovely golden yellow dye.
  • Added to your compost heap will help produce a potassium mix.
