Lovely sort of leafy green Hertshoornweegbree
« on: May 25, 2018, 21:08 »
Last year I have sown some sort of lettuce (I thought). It was growing fast and very good as a tougher lettuce or, when a little older, as a leafy green for a stir fry.

I have no idea what the name would be in English, but I will add a foto.

What I liked a lot about it is, it goes on through winter time! Do you get as bored as I do with all the carrots, beets and bulbs? This, together with chicory is such a nice change :)

Plantago coronopus is the Latin name

I've grown something before that was very similar from Real Seeds - just found it on their website as Minutina  :)  It did well over the winter in the greenhouse producing lots of greens for stir-fry.  I'd forgotten about it, so thank you for the reminder Toosje  :)

Link but they are out of stock at the moment.  Must remember to check this autumn, when the new seed crop is in.

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

They have it at Plant World Seeds  ;)

You're not helping you know  :lol:  Anyway, I refuse to buy any more seeds this summer as I haven't even got through the ones I had.  The dodgy start to the season and sheer lack of space once I could get going has thwarted me.   I have actually just got enough to fill the plot, rather than be running round cramming stuff in.   There's a moral in there somewhere I reckon  :lol:

You are welcome New Shoot.

I am going to let one plant go to seeds: if you'd like I could send you some through the post.

That's very kind  :)  If you get some seeds then yes please.  I have some seeds I save - tomatoes, beans and mangetout peas that I can swap back if you want  :)
