Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – we have no information for this species but suggest sowing the seed in spring in a cold frame. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in early summer. If you have enough seed then an outdoor sowing in situ in the spring should also succeed.
An easily grown plant, it succeeds in most soils and can be grown in the summer meadow. The whole plant, when bruised, emits a most unpleasant smell of sulphured hydrogen which is difficult to remove from the skin. If eaten by cattle, the plant will impart its smell to the milk[245].
Europe, including Britain, south and east from Sweden to the Mediterranean and Siberia.
