Press seed into surface of soil fall or spring and keep moist until germination, which takes from 1 to 3 weeks.  Thin or transplant to 2 feet apart.

    I love this lovage! Grows amazing in greenhouse in Park City zone 5. It’s the first to emerge in spring and produces thru fall in its cool side of the greenhouse. I cover the planter with an agriculture blanket over cold months. Leaves are great in salads and use stalks like celery in soups, or add to chili for additional zip and flavor.
