1 Packet (250 seeds) (KC9379)

Water sorrel during dry periods to ensure that the soil remains moist. Sorrel leaves can be harvested 6-8 weeks after sowing, by selecting a few leaves from each plant. Sorrel is best harvested regularly and while the leaves are small, as older, larger leaves become increasingly bitter. Remove sorrel flowers regularly to promote ongoing leaf production.
