How to Sow
The ease with which you’ll germinate lovage is indicated by its tendency to self-seed. Sow this perennial in spring or summer, cover to no more than 5mm, and keep moist until germination. Thereafter, it will tolerate a little more drying out.
How to Harvest
Snip or pinch off leaves. To blanch stems, bundle them up in newspaper or pile some light mulch around them. As for the root, there’s only one way to get at that! Loosen the soil with a garden fork, then pull!
