Rock Samphire - Sea Fennel - Potted plant Image

Also known as Sea Fennel because of it's ability to grow in saline conditions, it will nevertheless thrive in any free draining soil.
It is known an an herbaceous perennial but we have never known it to die back completely during winter.
Very little care is needed but a dressing of 'fish emulsion' once or twice a year is helpful.
The young shoots are excellent for an aromatic, slightly salty addition to fresh salads.
Chemically it is being used to enhance the quality of skin care products, as it has the ability to soften and rejuvinate dry skin.

Samphire is now regarded as 'Rare' so domestic cultivation is encouraged.

Potted cutting $6.50
