Introducing Salad Burnet

Have you met Salad Burnet before?

This is the beautiful 'Sanguisorba minor' (you know that dropping Latin names into a description really makes us excited on a Wednesday morning!).

It’s a fantastic easy to grow salad herb. It’s leaves both taste and smell like cucumber. Which means that not only is it a great perennial cut and come again salad herb BUT it has useful cocktail related applications too.

Sold yet? It is ridiculously hardy and easy to grow and also has gorgeous delicate flowers during the spring and summer that really make it quite special. Whenever I pot this variety, the smell is so fresh, clean and invigorating.

Have you grown Salad Burnet before? Tempted to add it to your garden or allotment?
