People have been growing flax for thousands of years, in many different parts of the world. In ancient Egypt, planting times were governed by the seasonal floods of the Nile. In Western Europe, flax was planted in the spring, and yet, in the Himalayas and Alps, oral legend tells that flax was sewn in the fall, at the same time as barley. China, India, the Middle East, Japan, Africa, and later North America, all had different planting times.
