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

£5.99

Plant in a 12cm 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. 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 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. Perennial buckwheat can produce seeds but is self sterile so you need two different forms to cross pollinate for viable seeds. We only have this form ‘GG’ but are on the look out for other forms if you have one to offer or exchange. Nonetheless, as a hardy leaf vegetable it is still a useful addition to the perennial vegetable garden.
