Planting & Care
Prune plant every spring and destroy all old or diseased plant material. Wear elbow-length gloves that are thick enough to protect your hands from thorns or a clumsy slip, but flexible enough to allow you to hold your tools. Always wear safety goggles; branches can whip back when released.

Care:
  • An accurate soil test will tell you where your pH currently stands.

Plantago himalaica is closely related to Plantago major in the form of leaves, scapes and spikes etc., but is distinguished by having a stipitate calyx and comparatively smaller, usually stalkless, sometimes shortly stalked leaves. Himalayan Plantain is found at altitudes of 2900 m and above in the Himalayas, from Kashmir to Nepal
