Burdock root is amazing!
We harvest it in the later part of it’s first summer (it matures in the 2nd year), and looks like below when we dig.
It grows well here at Fox Farms! The seeds from the mature plant are a larger bur that loves to stick to everything.
I heard that Velcro was invented from the ‘cockle bur’ as it is commonly called.
Animals and birds spread the seeds. So far, I haven’t had to intentionally plant any to keep stocked!
Purchase our burdock root dried, by the ounce to be cooked with or used for teas or infusions.
