Lovage (Levisticum Officinalis) - 50 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 3-8
The kitchen herb garden would not be complete without Lovage, the hardy long-lived perennial. Lovage seeds grow quickly and the herb plant can reach over 72 inches in height. It prefers full sun to partial shade, and it develops a long taproot, so cultivate the bed deeply before adding the Lovage plant. This herb is also commonly referred to as Garden Lovage.
An easy to grow herb, lovage grown from seed should be started in the spring. It can be jump started and sown indoors 6-8 weeks prior to transplanting outside. Cold stratify for 2 weeks before sowing. Lovage seed germination takes 10-14 days. Note: Lovage naturally has a lower germination rate of roughly 50% or so, so keep that in mind when growing it. When growing lovage plants from seed indoors, sow seed ¼ inch deep. Sow 3-4 seeds per pot. Keep the seeds moist. When the seedlings have their first few leaves, thin to the strongest seedling and transplant outside spaced at least 24 inches apart.
