Tansy is a herb Camilla , it is poisonous if taken in large doses , it use to be given for digestive disorders also intestinal worms but getting the right dose was a hit and miss method , I believe it's also used in bunches to keep flies out of the kitchen .. I'm not at all sure if it works .... :o)

Yep....that's it Amy....a very old medicinal plant, bit of a thug in the garden....I like the scent of the ferny vivid green leaves though, and the little button flowers seem to go on for ages....:o)

Do you think it would grow in Nepal Camillia.....there is plenty, I will send you some if you like some...:o) What sort of temperatures do you have there? I always imagine it would be misty, warm and damp....very beautiful though.........

Wow its really kind of you.I could also send some seeds that grows here but not spotted there.The temprature over here is around 42* celsius in summer.The place where I live is quite hot and dry.

I think they would survive alright don't you Janey , I have seen them growing in hot dry places , they like a loamy soil rich in nitrogen ... if that's any help !

Are these the ones with rough prickly leaves?

Yes I would think so Amy.......I think they would try there best to adapt...:o)
They have rough fern-like leaves Carole....quite a sturdy plant but dies down in the winter, which is a shame as the leaves would look great then.........
