Description: A perennial herb for herbal leys, kikuyu barriers, liquid teas and feeding animals. An essential part of any garden and orchard/forest garden, an important mineral accumulator. Does not spread from seed but will spread easily if the roots are broken up. Every small piece of root grows so plant where you will never need to dig!

Planting Instructions: The order will contain a mix of rooted / sprouted and unrooted / unsprouted pieces. For best results place unrooted / unsprouted pieces in compost in a warm place and keep well watered. Plant out once they have sprouted and increased in size. Rooted/ sprouted pieces can be planted straight out. Plant in spring approx 50cm apart (closer for barrier planting).
