Lovage, organic seeds
Levisticum officinale belongs to the Umbel family and is originally from Southern Europe and it has been used as a seasoning herb and also as a love potion for several thousand years. It is a perennial, vigorous and hardy plant, 1.5-2 m tall. Keep 40-60 cm between the plants! Lovage has an aromatic fragrance and taste. It germinates unevenly and should be pre-cultivated. Leaves, stalks, seeds and roots are used fresh, and dried they are excellent seasoning herbs and medicine. Lovage can replace stock in many dishes. Old plants loose some of their taste.
