Notes

An oil that is little inferior to olive oil is said to be obtained from the seeds[1]. The report also says that the plant has been cultivated in Russia for this purpose[1]. The seeds are very small and I wonder about the authenticity of this report[K].

Propagation

Seed - surface sow March in a greenhouse. The seed usually germinates in 10 - 21 days at 18°c[5]. Cool nights assist germination[5]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer.

The seed can also be sown in situ in July/August and will produce larger and more floriferous plants the following summer.

Cuttings of half-ripe wood in September in a cold frame[6].
