PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Rumex sanguineus var. sanguineus|
|Bloody dock, Red-veined dock, Red-veined sorrel|
|This most unusual and attractive foliage plant produces dense clumps of deep-green leaves with striking, beetroot-red veins. The colouring is usually more pronounced at cooler times of the year. The flower spikes have insignificant blooms and are best removed to encourage more foliage and to prevent self-seeding.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow in autumn or spring, either direct, lightly raking into the soil, or thinly on the surface of moist compost in a small seed tray, transplanting into individual pots and growing on in a cold frame or sheltered place until large enough to plant out.|
