Ratings & Reviews

Plantago Plantain

I love plantain! These seeds germinated very quickly! However not sure if there is mixed plantain seeds but I think the variety is the broad leaf variety Plantago Major. Most of the mature plants now have a flat larger leaf, rather than the slimer leafs that Plantago lanceolata has. Overall Very Happy!

Plantago Plantain

I bought the Plantago Plantain seeds as I was previously unsuccessful with transplanting. The seed grown Plantain has flourished in my vegetable patch growing into a healthy tall clump. I use the crushed leaf for bee-sting first aid ( the plantain juice takes away the sting pain immediately).

Easy to grow

It was easy to grow. I started it off in a pot then transplanted it into the garden. Its pretty big now and looks healthy. I just wanted to try it out. Thanks
