Description

Multiple small flowers of mid lemony-yellow adorn strong upright stalks, and emerge from amongst large deeply-incised leaves. This is an intriguing plant, some would say not pretty at all, whilst others disagree. But it has a deserved reputation as a natural weedkiller, its deep tap roots containing chemicals credited with repelling perennial weeds such as Ground Elder and Couch Grass.

Sowing Advice

For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
