How to Sow
Anise doesn’t like to be transplanted, so it’s best to sow your seeds directly where you want them to grow. They germinate easily, but will need regular water to keep the soil moist while they sprout. Scatter your seeds thinly – germination is very good.
How to Harvest
Trim off fresh leaves for salads. To get the seeds for flavouring, pick the seed heads when they are well-developed, but still green. Hang them up to dry until you can thresh out the seeds.
