Anethum graveolens


In cooking, use whole or ground seeds and dry or fresh fern-like leaves. Unlike many other long-lived herbs, plants must be replaced yearly. The flattened, yarrow-like flowers attract beneficial insects such as hoverflies. Sow in place. Quickly goes to seed, so sow some every few weeks in spring for a longer supply.
