Home grown trees in 2 months!!

No, I’m not kidding….for if you are building a model railway, you might do just that! Well, a dimunitive member of the goosefoot family, Chenopodium aristatum, known as sea foam flower or sea foam moss does resemble tiny trees in structure when seeding. I originally learnt this many years ago when I had this species on my seed list and was contacted by a model railway enthusiast who was struggling to find seed.  I love useful plants that tell stories, so although not an edible that will help hunger it gets a place in my garden (I’ve just sown seed again!)
