About six years ago I bought a variety of Orach called Good King Henry from Seeds of Victoria. West Coast Seeds also sells it as Magenta Orach.
I planted it for eating as well as its ornamental quality.
It gets quite tall when it goes to seed. Being the lazy gardener that I am I cut it back and laid it in the pathway.
To my delight this spring I had an amazing self-sown salad bar pop up. We’ve been enjoying it for over a month. Some of the leaves seem to be reverting to green but they are none the less delicious. I could not have planned this any better!
