To evaluate in vitro antibacterial activity and phytochemical analysis of methanolic extract of aerial parts of Hypericum perforatum L. growing wild in Kashmir Himalaya. Antibacterial activity was determined by agar well diffusion method and broth dilution assay against six bacterial strains comprising both standard laboratory and clinical strains. Phytochemical study was performed by using standard phytochemical methods. The extract showed pronounced activity against all the bacterial strains…
