Utterly delicious and not easy to find unless you live close to the coast, this wild plant of salty mudflats, marshes and the shoreline produces succulent tender shoots with a flavour reminiscent of asparagus, but a taste all of its own. Succulent stems which can be steamed to add an unusual flavour, specially good with fish. It is nothing short of an absolute treat - we love it! Instructions given! Note: germination may be erratic.
Sow April - July thinly outdoors in a large pot where it can remain without the need to transplant. Keep moist with normal water. From seedling stage, water with a solution of one tsp. of salt to every pint of water. Can also e sown direct in the garden depth Half-inch/1.5cm. Spacing Thin as necessary to 4in/10cm apart.Tip Although a hardy perennial, it will benefit from protection during the coldest winter months. Note: Germination may be erratic. Harvest from June onwards, pick sparingly from each plant to allow for regrowth.
