Dock / Sorrel

(Rumex spp.) Dock and sorrel are flavorful herbaceous perennial plants, cultivated for centuries as a garden herb or salad vegetable. Enjoyed raw or cooked, the leaves offer a unique, tart flavor to dishes. Plants are easy to grow from seed, prefer full sun to partial shade and require very little maintenance. Direct sow in the garden 2-3 weeks before last frost or start indoors and transplant around the time of last frost. Plant ¼ inch deep, 10 to 12 inches apart. Dock and sorrel are excellent as ornamental and edible additions to garden borders, mixed containers and rain gardens. Harvest tender leaves starting in early spring, remove flowering tops to keep leaves tender and to prevent unwanted volunteers. In some climates they may become invasive.
