False flax (annual) Camelina, gold-of-pleasure

This oilseed producing plant used to be common in Europe. Nowadays, it is only found in countries of northern Asia. The fast-blooming, yellow flowers form oil-filled seeds in their pods. Camelina makes an excellent green manure and bee meadow. Thresh the pods and press seeds to extract the rich oil.

Sow in March to April directly into the field.
