Lovage Lovage Lovage Lovage
Levisticum officinalis. AKA the Maggi Herb. Lovage is the main ingredient in an age-old flavoring used widely in Europe. The whole plant is edible, but its strongly flavored leaves are the primary pick for use fresh or dried in hearty winter soups and stews. Tasting a bit like intense Anise and Celery, its dark green leaves grow upright on tall plants with attractive sprays of yellow-green flowers. Lovage is best raised as transplants sown indoors 6 to 8 weeks prior to setting out after the last spring frost date. Once established, it is fairly easy to grow. Height: 3' to 7'. Perennial. Hardiness zones: 3-7. (OP.)

Average seed life: 1 year.

Herbs may be either direct-sown outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, or started indoors for transplanting or container gardening. Herbs require moderately rich, well-draining soil with at least 5 hours of bright sunlight. To start indoors: sow lightly in sterilized seed mix, lightly moisten and cover with plastic wrap until germination takes place. Do not water again until sprouts emerge. Remove plastic wrap once sprouted. Transplant outdoors when the threat of frost has passed. Some perennials like Lavender, Catnip or Savory prefer to be started indoors. Others such as Chives, Sage or Fennel prefer to be direct-sown outside once the soil has warmed. Most herbs dislike chemicals or over-fertilization. Feed lightly with kelp or fish emulsion once seedlings are well established. Keep lightly moist: never wet. Pinch back the plants to avoid flowering and to encourage leaf production.
