Sweet cicely seeds available

I have just harvested ripe seeds from my sweet cicely plants.  If anyone would like some please email me on annisveggies@hotmail.co.uk.  I won’t be charging for them.

Sweet cicely is a herbaceous perennial reaching up to two or three feet in height and up to two feet across.  They prefer damp and shady conditions, come up and flower early in the year nd attract early bumblebees.

The leaves can be used to sweeten tart dishes such as gooseberries and the seeds have a pleasant aniseed flavour whilst they are still green and chewable.  A very nice plant all round.  I grow mine close to fruit bushes and kales which works well.

About Anni Kelsey

I love forest gardens and forest gardening, nature, reading and everything good about being alive. I have written two books - the garden of equal delights (2020) - about the principles and practice of forest gardening; and Edible Perennial Gardening (2014) - about growing perennial vegetables in polycultures, which is basically forest gardening concentrating on the lower layers.

    I’d love some more seeds. Mine all succumbed to the pit before I could save any flowers. Shall I send you a stamped addressed envelope?
