Shiso flowers




My shiso has just started flowering as per photo, and considering how tricky it can be to germinate Shiso seeds (you have to put them in the fridge for a week etc) this year I have maybe a dozen or more Shiso plants which are all self seeded! So if you happen to ever grow it I highly reccomend letting it go to seed & just leave it in your garden, as it means next Spring you will be rewarded with lots of self seeded plants & no need to germinate any new ones at all! (Shiso green = Perilla = delicious with sushi & sashimi, great in salads etc… you can easily buy it fresh in supermarkets in Japan, but I’ve never seen it for sale in NZ… oishi!)
