Linseed Australian Flaxseed is an annual variety commonly grown for the highly nutritious flaxseed grains that have been variously described as a miracle or super food due to their combination of high fibre, protein, anti-oxidants, minerals and essential vitamins. In addition to growing your own organic flaxseed for home-made muesli bars, muesli or cakes, the seeds may also be used to grow your own sprouts for an extra boost of energy! Linseed Australian Flaxseed is a versatile plant which provides a beautiful display of colour in Spring and into Summer, in the Southern States where this variety is most commonly grown. Linseed Australian Flaxseed is a member of the Linaceae.

I am going to try to make some linen fibre here on the NSW Mid North Coast.
The seeds I ordered look good, they came with instructions and were delivered very promptly.
If it ever stops raining for long enough for me to work the soil up without damaging it, I will plant this year, if not, they should survive
until next year.. I will let you know how it works out.
