Herbaceous perennial native to Eurasia.  This is one of our finest plants.  Broadleaf sorrel excellent for making soups and sauces.  Do not overindulge, sorrel contains quite a bit of oxalic acid.  Plant prefers full sun and regular garden soil. Sow seeds in early spring.  Easy. Space plants 1 foot apart.

    Wonderful. Grew very easy. Valuable food crop, and charming, generous friend.

    As always, My seeds from Strictly Medicinal Seeds grew eagerly and healthy. We grew many plants from SMS in 2019, and now have healthy patches of edible and medicinal herbs. Garden sorrel is a favorite because it grows so well once established, and offers generous tasty greens so early in the spring and so late into the fall when many other edible greens are unavailable! And you only need to plant it once!!!

    I am writing this review also with a question however!!!!! I have a bed of about a dozen Garden sorrel plants in their second year that are now going to seed. I am glad to see them growing, and still harvesting some leaves. I would love to allow them to continue multiplying via seed, however, there is also YELLOW DOCK and curly dock that is going to seed nearby. Will these plants cross with one another? Is it likely that the seeds from my delicious garden sorrel plants have now mingles with the yellow dock and are unlikely to produce, soft, tasty offspring- or will the seeds still be rather true to the R. acetosa?

    I am hopeful that I will be able to let these re-seed, and harvest some seed for further propagation, but also am not surprised if the yellow/curly dock nearby (less than 10′) have spoiled the seeds this year! Thank you in advance for any reply and thank you ALWAYS for supporting us to grow valuable plants in our lives!

      Hi Andrew,
      thanks for staying in touch. I’ve never seen garden sorrel hybridize and so I think you can save the seeds with no problems. Richo
