Very useful salad and sandwich green

By: on 19 March 2016
I'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.

Great germination and healthy plants

Planted seeds early spring, germinated quickly. Healthy plant, great to cut leaves for salad mixes. Definitely worth having, does. It take up much room
