Seeds

Commonly known as "false flax" or gold-of-pleasure,

Camelina has been grown since Neolithic times and as an oilseed crop during the Bronze Age.

It is a short season annual that grows 1-3 ft tall, with branching woody stems, and can withstand water shortages in its early stages.

The tiny orange seeds have a 40% oil content. Outstanding homestead and garden oil source.

BOTANICAL NAME: Camelina sativa

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Plant in very early spring, or fall in mild climates. Prepare a weed-free bed, and rake to a fine tilth. Mix the seed with 2 quarts of sand, soil or potting mix and sow carefully - firm the seeds in but do not cover to protect from birds. Keep moist until germination. May also be sown in flats and transplanted out when it has 4 true leaves. It needs very little fertilizer or water - monitor for continued growth and feed. Harvest when seeds are hard.

GROW BIOINTENSIVE® CULTURAL INFO: C, W/ Spacing 6"
