Perennial buckwheat – Fagopyrum cymosum (F.dibotrys) ‘GG’

£6.99

PLANT IN A 1L POT – UK SHIPPING ONLY FOR THIS ITEM

Perennial buckwheat – Fagopyrum cymosum A tall herbaceous perennial growing to 1m-1.5m tall. Small white flowers in late summer. Leaves can be cooked like spinach and are rich in Rutin. Grow in any soil in sun or part shade but be mindful where you situate it, as it can put out many side shoots underground, so it is best planted in a large container or contained area, or in a wilder or marginal area where it can be left to do its own thing. Plants go dormant in winter as foliage is frost tender, however the root systems are hardy down to -20c and plants sprout again from the base with the warmth of spring.  You can plant out now ( it will die back in autumn but root systems will be developing underground during winter) or pot up into a larger container and keep undercover until spring and transplant out then when risk of frost has passed. You will see new shoots when conditions allow.  As a hardy leaf vegetable it is a useful addition to the perennial vegetable garden.
