Lovage has an interesting history as a beautiful herb. This herb is very stately as it grows to heights between four and six feet tall. At the top of its stems are beautiful pale yellow flowers.


This wonderful plant originally got the name "Lovage" from the derivative of "Love Ache". At first glance this seems to be a romantic woe or pain but in actuality it comes from the medieval name for parsley. You can trace the beginnings of this herb back to France, Europe, Romania and many more places. It has definitely been appreciated by many.


Lovage, scientifically called, Levisticum Officinale, flourishes in partly shady areas with a moist soil. This makes it an excellent choice for those difficult to plant areas.


It is no wonder that Lovage is virtually a universally favored herb. When you choose to grow this plant, nothing goes to waste. You can use the leaves in salads, soups and broths. The flowers are widely used in Romania to add extra flavors when pickling cabbages. Even the roots of this extraordinary plant do not go to waste. They are often eaten as a vegetable or a flavorful topping on salads. And, last but not least the seeds are often cherished as a spice, similar to the flavor found with fennel.


Lovage is not only tasty but has many medicinal uses. Some use this herb to tame a cough or even to relieve the pains a baby feels with colic. It is also very helpful with abdominal pains. There are even claims that this spectacular plant can help with liver problems.


Lovage is a herb that offers not only beauty and flavor, but also helps alleviate many aliments.

SOWING THE SEED

Lovage is an easy herb to grow, from freshly harvested Levisticum officinale seeds. They can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow them at a shallow depth of 1/16" under topsoil. Avoid burying them too deep since they will require direct sunlight to properly germinate. Transplant, or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Lovage plants will thrive in an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day, but will also tolerate partially shaded areas as well. They will also require temperatures of at least 70F and a soil that is loamy to average. Be sure that the sowing medium is also well drained as well. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily, until germination has successfully occurred.

GERMINATION & GROWTH

Lovage seeds typically take anywhere between 7 to 21 days to germinate. The plants will reach a mature height of roughly 4 to 6 feet tall, and can be spaced about 24 inches apart from one another. Their towering heights make them a good selection for a backdrop herb, since their foliage is rather attractive anyways. The plants can be harvested to add flavor to soups, stews, sauces, salads and more. 90 Days.
