Growing Information

These do live on neglect, but they do love a bit of water with free draining soil (steer clear of clay soil). We’ve had great success in aquaponics and they do well in shady spots as well.

It can become invasive if you let it go to seed, so unless you want to collect seeds, remove flower heads as they grow.

Sorrel is high in oxalic acid (like spinach) so if you have liver issues or have a sensitive stomach / skin conditions you should avoid eating it fresh.
