Salsify grows wild here. I have never tried to grow it but it comes up all over the place from its dandelion like seeds blowing in the wind. Here it is a xeric plant that does not grow in my garden since the garden gets too much water for it to survive.I just ordered a packet of salsify seeds and I am excited to try growing it for the first time. Does anybody here have any experience with growing it? Do I treat it similar to carrots?
Sorry I never harvested it. It does have a decent sized root in the fall after it goes to seed.Interesting! Do you know how long it takes to be ready for harvest? I will probably grow it in random sunny spots rather than in the garden as to avoid overwatering it.
