we harvest in late September and October. my question is "how to get rid of the bugs that hide in it? can it be submerged in water and be ok?
according to science... a weed is any non native plant to your region. So saying a weed is something we don't want in our garden is false our gardens are full of weeds we like!
Sweet Annie should be harvested when the buds start to open and the flowers begin to turn yellow around late summer. You should cut your plant in the morning or evening. This plant grows quickly and gets woody so you will probably need looping shears or a pruning saw. Make sure to cut the dead flowerheads if you don’t cut it before it blooms, otherwise it will self sow.
