Native Linseed // Linum marginale

If you want to start your native herb collection but don't know where to start, then Native Linseed is for you.  This is a great beginner plant.

The Native Linseed is a slender and thin native bush herb. The stems are very fibrous and the seed can be eaten cooked or straight off the bush.  

Native Linseed is a hardy herb and can tolerate frost and drought.  They thrive in full sun but also don't mind part shade.  The herb has small linear blue-green leaves and produces beautiful blue flowers. 

Harvesting: The plant dies in summer and resprouts in autumn. Most seeds mature in late spring, use these to replant or can be eaten. Hand-pick capsules when they are tan-brown. To fully remove seeds, the capsules may need to be rubbed against a fine wire screen. Clean seed using sieves. 

Growing Conditions: Native Linseed only need occasional watering and like well-drained soil. Sow seed in autumn in potting mix and cover the seeds with more potting mix or vermiculite. The plant spacing should be 20 cm if planted in single rows (50 cm to 1 m between rows) and 30 to 40 cm if planted in potting mix trays. 

Size: Usually 10 to 60 cm high, and sometimes up to 1 m.
