|Familiar to many as an ingredient in dried flower arrangements, with its rich orange lanterns, many do not know that the small red fruit contained in within the husks is edible and has a higher concentration of vitamin C than lemons! However, the rest of the plant is poisonous, so treat with care and ensure that only the fruits are consumed.
NOTE: Depending on time of year, plants will be delivered either in pots or as bare-rooted rhizomes.
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Press seed onto the surface of moist, but not over-wet, potting compost; seal in a plastic bag at 70F/20C for germination, then prick out seedlings and grow on in a cold frame or nursery area until autumn, when the plants can be moved to their final positions.|
