Lovely lovage, this is a super versatile culinary herb with a cool celery-like flavour. The soft leaves, which look a little like more angular parsley leaves, add flavour to soups and sauces. It is also a good cocktail ingredient, adding a little je ne sais quoi to your tipple.
Grow in a sunny or partially shady position and keep the soil moist. Keep it well trimmed and harvest outer leaves. Cut the plant right down to the base after flowering.
All herbs are planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot. (
