Purslane (Claytonia perfoliata) Herb Seeds

Purslane this American native is also known as miner's lettuce, as it was widely eaten during the Californian Goldrush. Totally hardy, it is an excellent cut-and-come-again salad crop right through the winter months. Preferring cooler temperatures for optimal production, it will grow in most soil types, asking only consistent moisture.This great winter salad crop should give a continuous supply of leaves from October to May. Usually you will get 4 or 5 cuts through this period; the last couple of crops in the spring are the best, because they produce tiny white edible flowers through the centre of the leaf.
