How to Grow Anise Herb

Annual, Pimpinella Anisum

Those of us growing Anise, do so for the fresh and popular flavor of licorice. Anise is native to Southern Europe and the Mediterranean. You can also find Anise growing wild in fields. It is related to caraway and dill plants.

Anise plants have lacy leaves, and heads of white flowers that give way to seeds containing tasty oils. When in bloom, Anise displays a profusion of flowers. And that's good, because the flowers produce the seeds that produce the oils that tastes so good! This plant grows 18-24".


Plant Propagation:

Anise plants are grown from seed. Directly sow seeds into your garden. Sow seeds early in the season, and cover lightly with soil. Space seedlings, or thin plants to 18" apart in rows 12 inches apart.


How to Grow Anise:

Anise plants are easy to grow. They prefer full sun and a well drained soil. They will do well in average soils, and tolerate dry soil conditions. Water the plants during dry periods, once or twice per week. Add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice during the growing season.

Harvest flower heads after seeds have formed, and the flower head has died. Extract seeds and dry them in a cool, dry location.


Main Cooking Uses:

Anise oil are extracted from the seeds.

Use leaves in salads, seeds in baking, cookies, pastries, cheese, and candies. It is also used to flavor oils and liqueurs.

Leaves and flowers can also be used as a garnish.


Medicinal Herb Applications:

Anise is often used to treat stomach aches.
