    Used widely in French cuisine to flavour soups sauces and egg dishes this is a fast growing annual with a delicate aniseed flavour. The young outer leaves have the best flavour and can be frozen for later use.

  • Growing Instructions:

    Sow in March to August outdoors directly into well prepared soil in a semi shaded position. Sow thinly 13mm deep in rows 30cm apart or sow indoors in pots on a sunny windowsill for fresh leaves virtually all year round. Thin the seedlings to 15cm apart when large enough to handle. The plants can quickly run to flower if they are not kept watered and regular sowings are required for a constant supply. You will be able to harvest outside from May until the sharp frosts but indoor crops can be enjoyed year round.
