Harvest burdock root yourself

Typi­cal­ly, bur­docks are bien­ni­al plants. The sphe­ri­cal, pink inflo­re­s­cence with flower heads only deve­lo­ps in the second year.

Bur­docks are not only known for the fact that their fruit heads tend to stick to clot­hing or ani­mal fur. Its strong taproot, which extends up to one meter into the ground, also makes the bur­dock so special.

With a bit of luck, you can also find the bur­dock in your home. They are often found in places whe­re more deman­ding plants do not like it. Roadsi­des, fen­ces, walls, dams or rub­ble dumps are some examp­les. Autumn is the opti­mal time to har­ve­st the long, fle­shy roots of burdock.

You can also cul­ti­va­te bur­dock in your own gar­den. A sun­ny to par­ti­al­ly shaded spot is ide­al for the plant. Basi­cal­ly, the plant is very robust and easy to care for.
