This herb dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A tall addition to the herb garden, this hardy perennial can be used to season soups and stews. The leaves, stems and seed have a similar (but stronger) flavour to celery, and it is said to be effective in aiding digestion or calming an upset stomach.
