Sweet Annie wormwood is a non-toxic herb; however, in instances where large quantities have been ingested, you should definitely consult the vet, as it has the potential to become toxic at that point.

Q. Drying Sweet Annie

I live in New Hampshire and harvested my first crop of Sweet Annie. I tied in bunches and hung in my house (a room that is dark, warm and airy). I did make the cutting when the small bud blossoms appeared. Sad to say, only one bunch dried nicely. The others look like wilted ‘lettuce’, and feel limp as if they did not dry. What could possibly have gone wrong? This is my first try at this. . . . help??!!

While grown mainly for the aromatic, fern-like foliage, Sweet Annie does indeed bloom at the tips of the branches. They begin as little green beads that gradually turn yellow to golden in color.

Q. Sweet Annie

I bought two Sweet Annie plants last year and had a great harvest in late summer. I followed the instructions about cutting and left a few branches on the plant to help it come back to life in the spring. It is now May and I have a feeling my plants are DEAD. Neither plant shows any signs of growth. I was just wondering when they are suppose to start new growth? Is May too soon or can I assume they are DOA?

The new growth should appear in spring, though it's been a little cool in many areas of the country this spring, so this could be causing the plants to take a bit longer. I would give it another couple weeks or so before giving up on them.

Q. Wilting Annie

My 2 Annies are wilting. I have them in a very sunny spot, water them lightly and have kept the soil well fertilized. Is there anything else I can try before they are beyond saving? I’ve had them for about 2 weeks now and they are barely surviving.

Thank you wrangler! This is the rare occasion I went with a plant I was unfamiliar with. We just had 2 days of a warm rain, and that perked at least one of the two back up to be pretty promising. There is just something about a fresh rain that transforms a plant far better than anything coming out of a hose. :-)

Assuming that you're talking about sweet annie, this article may help you with the basics for this plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/wormwood/wormwood-plant-growing-sweet-annie.htm
Like any new plant, this needs to be watered generously for the first 3 or 4 weeks. If your plants are wilting, they're probably too dry. Also, you don't need to worry about fertilizer until they are established, and then probably every couple of months at the most.
