Now is the time to plant Lovage

Do you have lovage in your garden? If not, now is the time to sow seeds. In a few weeks you'll be able to buy lovage plants ready to go straight into the garden.

Here's an article I've written about Lovage- how to grow and use the Lovage herb.

If you visit it please leave a message.

Do you love lovage? It tastes rather like celery, it's easy to grow, you can use it all summer in salads and recipes, and it looks pretty too.

Here's a picture of lovage in my herb garden.

The sorrel is just appearing, but no sign yet of lovage.

At this time of year I'm checking the herb garden to see if any fresh herbs are on their way.

The tiniest shoots of sorrel are just peeping through, but there is no sign yet of  the lovage . If you click on the links, you'll find lots of reasons to grow these two great herbs.

These two herbs are easy to grow, and as they are not often found in shops, it makes sense to grow your own. Now is the time to sow! You can buy seeds from Amazon.
