Alexanders (Smyrnium olusatrum) - seeds
Alexanders > LinkExternal link were introduced to Britain by the Romans, along with Ground elder, a notorious weed, and other, more conventional vegetables and herbs such as radishes, cabbage, rosemary, mint and coriander (cilantro). Alexanders are believed to have been further cultivated in monasteries and can still commonly be found among the sites of medieval monastery gardens and near churches. The plant was used in herbal medicine and extensively grown for its edible leaves, stems, roots and seeds, but by the nineteenth century it was almost completely forgotten. They eventually established themselves in the wild.
