Very easy to grow. Plant in full sun away from the wind. Do not plant near fennel; this affects the flavor of both. Sow anytime in warm climates or mid-spring in cold areas. Press seed into top of soil but do not cover. Seeds need light to germinate. Keep soil moist until they germinate.
Harvest leaves anytime. Cut seed heads for pickling after tiny seeds have formed but before they begin to dry and turn brown. Mature seeds may be dried and saved for later use.
