Pink blooming Buckwheat

The very delicate and dainty flowers make a rich bee pasture. Height reaches approximately 60 cm high. In the past, it was grown as a pseudo-cereal in our region. It establishes quickly and makes a great ground cover and green manure for crop rotation.

From April to August, sow directly into the field by broadcasting or in rows 10–15 cm apart. It even thrives on poor soils and high altitudes.
