This drought tolerant and hardy plant, could offer a better solution for dry or wet summers alike. With the capacity to cope with a range of conditions, including prolonged droughts, the relevance of growing edible hardy perennials like this becomes obvious after our recent dry spells.
It is not only super easy to maintain - but new plants can be grown from even one leaf! Just pop the leaf into a shallow dish of water in a warm, bright place - remembering to change the water daily and you will soon notice new roots coming out of the bottom within days. Plant this new baby plant and it will grow within the year into a healthy plant that can go straight into the garden.
The leaves are mild, crisp and juicy - making a welcome addition to a salad.
