Camelina (Camelina sativa)

Camelina, also called bastard flax or German sesame, was once cultivated as a food source for humans and animals. Indeed, this annual herbaceous plant, cultivated in Europe, has allowed the production of fodder and oil for more than 3000 years. Used in particular as a green manure, the camelina is gradually making a name for itself again. Its honey-bearing yellow flowers produce seeds whose oil, very rich in omega 3, gives it growing popularity in the health departments. In addition, its powerful root is very popular for loosening soils that are too compact. Note you can make brooms!

High temperatures can affect flowering.
