Herb Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Sorrel Red Veined is an easy to grow perennial herb that has a distinctive tangy lemony taste that adds flavour to a salad, makes an excellent soup or sauce for fish.
Sorrel Red Veined Herb has very attractive foliage with leaves that are light green with deep red veining - it looks as good in the garden as on a plate with mixed salad leaves. It does have a strong flavour so best use just a couple of leaves in a salad.
Sorrel leaves are at their best when young & tender as the older ones tend to be tough & bitter. If it is sown early it can be picked in its first season (about 6-8 weeks from sowing). As a perennial it will begin to grow from February the following year.
Red Veined Sorrel will reach a height & spread of 30cm and although it requires very little maintenance a regular chop back will encourage new foliage & prevent it from going to seed.
Red Veined Sorrel makes an attractive & useful container plant.
