Description

Plantago coronopus

Also known as Minutina. Fantastic cold hardy plantain for winter and spring salads, which has been eaten as a vegetable for centuries.  Mild tasting rosette of slender leaves which re-grows after being cut.  Leaves are sweetest before plant flowers, but flowers are also edible.  Plantains are also known for their medicinal properties, including their use in poultices for external sores and insect bites, and internally for coughs. Height to 25cm. 9cm pot. Certified organic plant. This is a cool season plant, hence available autumn to early spring only.
