Tall Green purslane

Portulaca oleracea
HOW TO GROW PURSLANE

Direct sow in spring or early summer, frost sensitive. Tap-rooted, tolerates poor compacted soil, drought, low maintenance. When harvested in the early morning, the leaves have ten times the malic acid content as when harvested in the later afternoon and thus have tangier taste. Self seeds and can form a think carpet, considered an invasive weed in agricultural crops. Difficult to remove once established. Can be propagated by cuttings replanted in moist ground. Surface sow, press into soil, do not cover. Soil pH 6.1-7.8. Hardiness zones 5-9. Annual.

Usual seed life: 5-40 years.

Direct seeding works well, as seeds germ readily in less than a week, but thinning is important for productive plants. Tags: Color: Green, Certification: Organic.

Wild Garden Seed Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth Seed grower since 1994
Karen and I began Wild Garden Seed in 1994 at the same kitchen table where her laptop is sitting now. The seed business was an adjunct to our Wild Garden Salad business until September of 2001, when we left salad selling behind and rededicated all of our energies to making a livelihood as seed growers, breeders, and sellers. There were some very tough years there. In 2002 we began a joint venture with our friends John Eveland and Sally Brewer, owners of Gathering Together Farm, to grow and sell organic seed under the Wild Garden name. Gathering Together Farm provided the infrastructure, means of production, and home office services, Shoulder to Shoulder Farm provided the seed management, processing, research, and marketing. We shared many complimentary farm functions over the years: the insectary benefits of diverse flowers in a long period of blooming, the harvest synergies of biennial crop production together, peaks and ebbs in farming cash flow, and seasonally opportune infrastructure sharing. All of these made the farm function better and helped lift Wild Garden Seed into a self-sustaining, farm-based seed enterprise with an international reach. We sold seed to 41 countries in 2014, our 20th anniversary.
