(Levisticum officinalis) Flavorful, dark green leaves and yellow flowers; the leaves and seeds are used for flavoring stews, soups, salads, pickles, and more. Nice celery taste. The hardy plants can be grown in most of the North.

What are the pros? Better than celery

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I've had this in my garden for years and love the fact that it gives a celery-like flavor to anything, but actually tastes better. The texture and stringiness of celery is a problem for some of us, but finely dicing this herb to use in place of celery, such as in potato or other salads is the best. I often toss an entire sprig into stews and soups and LOVe the flavor. It's stupid easy to grow and keeps going from spring through the first frost. It will come back in the spring (I am in zone 5), but will probably be best if replaced about every 3 years. You've got to try this flavor!

What are the pros? None so far

What are the cons? Slow to grow

Review:

I had trouble with lovage growing and maturing. I started some seedlings indoors before spring planting. Only one seed survived indoors and no plants survived the transplant, which is disappointing but not necessarily surprising. The new seeds I started in early July. Now in mid-August they have grown perhaps 6 inches with a few branches. I do not think I'll get to harvest any except when I pull the plant out for the season. Perhaps this is a slower growing plant or perhaps the warmer temps at the end of July and August hindered it's growth. I do not know if I will try this again next year.

What are the pros? fresh seed

What are the cons? none

Review:

We had a near 100% germination rate with these seeds, which says that the seed was very fresh and carefully harvested. The plants have been vigorous and very fragrant.

Review:

Growing 200 miles from Canadian border in a large pot. Left outside last winter with no special care. It was the coldest winter in 20 years with frost down 2 feet. The plant was ready to harvest in April and in bloom by May. Divide plant every few years and share with friends. Use like celery leaves, but the flavor is stronger so a little goes a long way. Can be used in soup stock, stew, casseroles, salad, anywhere you might use celery. Can also be dried or frozen. The roots and seeds are also edible.

What are the pros? Perennial, robust, huge

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted lovage last summer, small plants. They over-wintered wonderfully in zone 3, our ground freezes to 6 1/2 deep, solid as a rock, but plant came back fast, and now in early June a year later, they are already 6 feet tall! I cut off stems and hang them upside down to dry for winter use. Don't dig them up to overwinter them in the house--I don't think they'll like that! Also, just use a little bit in soups, stews, salads, etc., because it is REALLY strong. You can make an herb tea out of it as well. I am planting a perennial garden to ensure foodstuffs without much work, and this plant is a wonderful addition.
