One of the very first plants up in the spring, Sorrel begins producing tender new leaves very early in the season and continues until they bloom in midsummer. Once cut back the plants will re-grow for a fall/winter crop.

Harvesting
The leaves can be harvested year round for culinary use. The plants are most potent medicinally during their bloom time in summer.
