Burnet, sometimes called salad burnet, is a little known and underappreciated perennial herb. The leaves have a fresh taste similar to cucumber, and they can be tossed in salads, used as a seasoning, or brewed into a tea. Burnet is usually grown from seed sown directly in the garden.
Burnet prefers a sunny spot in the garden, though in hot climates it can benefit from some afternoon shade. Work some compost and soil conditioner into the garden bed to create a rich, well-drained site.
In early spring, plant three or four seeds 1/2" deep in clusters 12" apart. Cover with soil and water well. Maintain consistent moisture until seeds germinate. Thin to one plant every foot.
