Not many seedlings19 November 2019Germination rate isn't great and but the surviving seedlings seems to grow strongly.. After reading other reviews I suspect it's due to the hot spring/summer in Brisbane.
Very useful salad and sandwich greenBy: customer review from 4/12/2015 on 19 March 2016I'm growing sorrel in part (near heavy) shade and it's still producing lots of leaves. Pests don't care for it and it is not bothered by frost. It has a citrusy flavour which adds a nice tangy taste to your salad or sandwich mix. I haven't tried it cooked yet. Definitely deserving of a spot in your garden.
