Plantain Seeds - Boston
60-90 Days to maturity. Plantago lanceolata. Boston Plantain Herb and Cover Crop Seeds. Non-GMO, cool-season perennial, open-pollinated, forage friendly (cattle and sheep). Boston plantain is a narrow-leaf type of plantain foliage also known as English Plantain, Ribwort, Ribgrass, Black Jack, Hen Plant, Lamb’s Tongue, and Buckhorn. This unique herb is useful in the home garden, as a cover crop, or for livestock forage. When used as an herb, it boasts benefits such as gut healing and immune system support. As a cover crop, it reduces soil compaction and suppresses weeds. For people utilizing no-till practices, we strongly recommend using an additional killing method besides crimping alone for adequate termination. As a forage crop, this plant is most popularly used for beef and lamb raising and is ideally mixed with other crops such as chicory, red and white clover, and tall fescue grass. ~# seeds/oz.
