Botanical Name: Arctium lappa

Burdock is a biennial herb, native to Europe and Asia; it grows to a height of 1.5m. The large broad green leaves are hairy and paler underneath. The flowers are reddish purple with green hooked bracts. Burdock has deep long roots that are white on the inside and dark brown on the outside.

The roots are eaten as a food in Japan they are known as Gobo, they are a good source of dietary fibre and are very nutritious. They can be harvested in spring of their first year or autumn of their second year.

Burdock root helps the body cleanse itself from toxins, opening the channels of elimination, bowel, kidney, lungs and skin. Useful where there is a buildup of metabolic waste with associated inflammation as in rheumatism, gout and arthritis. Burdock is a potent blood cleanser useful for skin conditions such as boils, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. A decoction of burdock root and dandelion root can be taken for acne.

The seeds have a reported hypoglycemic action. Chinese use the seed to cool and decongest. An infusion of the seeds will help to remove toxins in fevers and infections of mumps and measles.

Growing Conditions

Burdock likes a deep soil, for its long root to develop, grow in an open sunny position. It will readily reproduce itself from dropped seed.

    Excellent service. I ordered 5 burdock seedlings as a present. The plants arrived in less than a week, neatly packed with instructions on submerging them in water. All 5 plants are doing well.

    My dream plant!

    I was looking for the Burdock plant for a long time. I was grown up with this plant back in Taiwan, and I haven't seen this "goodie" for the last 30 years, ( I dream about it ). Finally, I saw this plant from Mudbrick Herb Cottage website. This was my first time online order , we are very happy to have this beautiful plant. Many thanks to Mudbrick Herb Cottage. The plant was delivered fast and arrived in a healthy state. Love love love it! My dream plant!

    Healthy plants from Mudbrick Herb Cottage. Thank you Sandra.

    My recent purchase of two Burdock plants arrived in good condition, well packaged and in less than a few days. The plants were extremely healthy but the challenge for me is the depth of soil in the sandstone Blue Mountains,together with a proliferation of trees adding to a shortage of sun in my location, matters I can do little to change. However in the time they have been in the ground they do appear to be making a serious effort to move to the root-making stage. I do take the precaution of covering them at night as it is May and temperatures are low. Will keep you informed as to progress as my venture to produce a burdock root for myself to make a tea drink instead of being at the mercy of burdock root providers who mostly sell a product grown overseas and with a price (based on burdock tea providers) which would amount to $180 a kilo ($9 for a 50g packet of tea). I hope my mathematics are correct. My cost plus a little bit of work in the garden, will be the cost of the healthy Mudbrick-supplied plants only and I will also have the added benefit of the burdock plant leaves as well. I am no accountant, but the mathematics seem to support my efforts. Thanks Mudbrick people. The plants are strong and so far have survived three weeks of typically Blue Mountains weather following their early life in sunny Queensland. Rex Williams Springwood. NSW. 2777
