Salad Burnet is a hardy wildflower or culinary herb.
The globular flowerheads are interesting and have female flowers at the top and lower down, male flowers with long stamens.
The leaves have a mild cucumber flavour and can be used in salads.
Sow in spring or early autumn. Prepare the soil by removing any weeds and raking lightly.
Scatter the seeds thinly on the soil surface where they are to grow, and gently rake them in or cover very lightly with soil, (do not bury too deep). Water gently.
They can also be grown in pots or trays inside, (I recommend using peat free biodegradable pots), and planted out when grown.
Do not let seed bed or pots dry out before seeds have germinated.
