I received some wild chicory seeds from a gardening mag. Have been growing them in greenhouse and they look like they are ready for planting. But before I do wanted to check that they are not going to become invasive with the seeds. Many thanks.



well if you dead head them after flowering that would solve any self seeding. I don't know how fertile the seeds are of this pretty plant.

We have it growing in a couple of 'wild' places in Bracknell, but I've never seen more than half a dozen plants in each location, usually less.

It's a common roadside weed in the colder areas of the western U.S.--above 1200 m elevation in Arizona. Religious dead-heading should prevent that, though.
