How to grow
Eyebright is a European wild flower and does not grow
readily in garden conditions. It is also difficult to obtain seeds. Blooms in late summer and is
essentially a wild flower. Eyebright is parasitic and relies on the companion
planting of grasses to prosper.
Eyebright likes grassy patches not well-tilled soil.
Grows to a maximum of 20cm if conditions are right but usually to
about 15 cm. The leaves look a bit like tiny nettles and the flowers are white
streaked with yellow and violet.
Tea can be made from the whole plant fresh or dried and taken as a
tonic or remedy for hay-fever. An infusion of the leaves can be used to bathe
tired, sore eyes.
