ex Eco Seeds. “Tall (2.1m), vigorous herb. Perennial. Mine grows in mulched soil beside a low tin fence - roots cool & head in sun. Dies down in autumn then comes away again in spring. Used in soups, stews, salads and as a savoury tea. Use as a celery substitute. Seeds can be used in bread and pastries, on salads, rice & mashed potatoes. It has medicinal uses as well.” (Euphemia Stonehouse).
