Red sorrel is an attractive plant that does well in borders and adds a striking ornamental feature to any vegetable garden.
Red sorrel is generally a plant that requires little attention, doing well in warm climates and growing in cooler areas. In the tropical areas, it can be grown as a cool season annual. It prefers full sun, but this may depend upon how hot the garden aspect is. Sorrel can tolerate part shade and some gardeners recommend a sheltered position. Sorrel is considered vulnerable to frost and will need some cover or protection if it is to survive.
Sorrel is propagated by seed sown directly into the garden or by wind pollinated, self-sowing seed in later years. Seedlings should be thinned to approximately 30 cm apart. Mature plants can be divided and transplanted once the leaves and stems have been trimmed. The plants benefit form pruning after flowering to encourage new growth. If you do not wish sorrel to self-seed, remove the seed heads before the wind dispersal begins.
Propagation notes will be supplied with seed packet.
