Herb of the Month


Levisticum officinale
Hardy Perennial
To 72 inches

     Lovage has a strong, yet sweet, celery aroma and flavor. This herb is a commonly used herb in European countries where it is used to flavor soups, stews, poultry and vegetable dishes.
     Lovage is almost always used fresh, as it does not retain much flavor when it is dried. It does freeze quite well.
     Although it is easy to grow the seeds have a low germination rate and old seeds may not germinate at all. Lovage is a very heavy feeder so prepare the planting area with lots of composted manure. Additional fertilizer may be required in the second and subsequent growing seasons to keep the growth lush and green.
     Chose a location that receives full sun or partial shade. Because it grows so tall, make sure that lovage is planted on the north side of a bed so it does not shade other plants. Space the plants at least 36 inches apart.
     The commercial grower can do quite well selling lovage by marketing it to those from European countries. If they know you have it-they will buy it! I have been unable to grow enough to supply the demand at farmer's market from those that love to cook with it!

     Lovage is covered in more detail in Chapter 28 of Growing and Selling Fresh-Cut Herbs by Sandie Shores.
