Anise Herb Seeds


Anise has been around for a long time and is native to the eastern Mediterranean region. 

Highly valued in ancient times for its distinctive licorice flavor, to relieve menstrual cramps, as a digestive aid and used now to flavor drinks, candies and many dishes. 

Anise is a herbaceous annual reaching 3' tall.  Leaves are feathery and flowers are white. 

Many people plant anise because it is used by the larvae of some the many beautiful Lepidopter species (moths and butterflies).

Anise grows best in light, fertile well draining soils. 

Plant seeds after all danger of frost has passed. 

Anise doesn't transplant well because of its long taproot.   


Herbal Lemonade Boil 2 cups of water and pour over a 2" sprig of rosemary OR 1 heaping tablespoon of lavender flowers. Steep for 5-8 minutes and then remove herbs. Add 1/3 c. sugar or honey and stir to dissolve. Pour into a 1 quart jar and add 1/4 c. lemon juice. Fill the rest of the way with cold water. Chill and taste, adjusting lemon and sweetness to taste. Serve over ice, with a small fresh sprig of rosemary or lavender if you like.
