Uses

Toxic parts

The green leaves of plants can contain a toxic cyanogenic glycoside, it is especially present during and just after a drought and is particularly toxic to ruminants[1][2]. Plants growing in Britain are usually perfectly safe, this is probably due to the climate[1].

Edible uses

Notes

The white base of the leaf stem can be eaten raw or cooked[3][4][2][5]. Best harvested in late spring, the white base has a pleasant mild sweet taste, somewhat like cucumber[6]. An unpleasant odour is produced whilst the plant is being cooked[7]. The green parts of the plant should not be eaten since they can contain a toxin[8]. Only the bases of leaf stems should be used, and not the bases of flowering stems[6]. See notes at top of the page.

Seed - parched and ground into a powder[2][9][10][8][11].

The roasted seed is a coffee substitute[10][8][12].

Unknown part

Material uses

The ashes of the plant are rich in potassium and can be used in making soap[7].

Propagation

Seed - we have no information for this species but suggest sowing the seed in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe if this is possible. Stand the pots in about 2cm of water. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer. Division in spring[13]. Larger divisions can be planted out direct into their permanent positions. We have found that it is best to pot up smaller divisions and grow them on in light shade in a greenhouse or cold frame until they are growing away well. Plant them out in the summer or the following spring.
