Lovage (levisticum officinale)

A hardy-perennial plant, growing up to 2 metres, and native to the Mediterranean, but now naturalised throughout the temperate regions of the world.

Lovage was used by the ancient Greeks who chewed the seed to aid digestion and relieve flatulence.

It grows well in this country in the ground, or in a big container, but after a few years becomes a tall plant, so it"s position needs choosing carefully.
