SORREL Red Vein - 50 Seeds

(Rumex acetosa)

Young leaves green veined with red add interesting colour to salads. Flavour is a slightly acid-like garden sorrel. Tap rooted plant with lance-shaped foliage. An attractive addition to the herb garden. The plant grows to a height of 30 -40 cm. Also known as bloody dock. 

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 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 from 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 a seed packet.
