    A hardy, aromatic herbaceous plant with bright green, deeply cut leaves that are further enhanced by the appearance of great, flat-topped clusters of tiny, white flowers in summer. These flowers ripen to produce shiny, dark brown fruits that are widely used in herbal medicine. The fern-like leaves are flecked with white and have a delicate aniseed flavour. They are often added to fruit dishes to reduce the acidity. The thick tap root can also be eaten raw or cooked as a vegetable.

  • Garden care: Divide plants in spring or autumn. It self-seeds freely so dead-head regularly if you do not want more to come.
