JASIONE MONTANA 'SHEEP'S-BIT'
Brassicaceae: downy annual to 30cm, found on calcareous grassland. Sweetly scented white or mauve flowers from July – August. The fruit pods or rounded, winged and notched. The leaves toothed and spoon-shaped. Rare, mainly found in the Chilterns. Native to Western and southern Europe, including Britain, to North Africa.
The seeds are sometimes used as a source of mustard. Pungency of mustard develops when cold water is added to the ground-up seed.
Little used in modern herbalism, rocket candytuft is a bitter-tasting tonic, aiding digestion and relieving wind and bloating. It is traditionally taken to treat gout, rheumatism and arthritis. All parts of the plant have antirheumatic and antiscorbutic properties. The seeds are considered very useful in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis and dropsy. The plant is gathered in the summer and can be dried for later use. The seeds are harvested when fully ripe. A common homeopathic remedy is made from the seeds.
Easily grown in a good, well-drained ordinary garden soil in a sunny position. Prefers a calcareous soil but tolerates mildly acid soils, will also succeed in poor soils.
Sow seeds spring in situ for summer flowering or late summer in situ for a spring flowering. The seed germinates within 3 weeks. Very easy.
