Wood Sorrel - Oxalis acetosella

SKU: 4.01

A delightful dainty woodland plant, with delicate white flowers in spring, and light green 'shamrock' leaves, that can be eaten in salads as sorrel. It needs shade, and to be free of aggressive competition, so ideally planted at the base of trees, or in clear patches on shady banks. Plant the slender rhizomes about 2.5cm (1") deep in leaf mouldy soil.

Despatched – March & Mid August to the End of October
