Pimpinella anisum

Anise is a medium shrub that grows to about 1m with numerous feathery leaves and white flowers. It is grown primarily for the seed which has traditionally been used as a medical herb and for numerous culinary uses. It contains a phytoestrogen called anethole which may be why it was used to combat menstral cramps. it has also been used as a calminative and to combat headlice and mites. It has many culinary uses and is widely used to flavour liquors and sweets. It has even been used as a fishing lure by rubbing the oil on the bait. Anise grows best in light fertile well drained soil. The seed should be planted shallowly in warm garden soil early in spring. It transplants poorly and should be sown direct. Space the plants about 60-100cm apart. Collect the seeds by cutting the heads when they have partly dried. Hang the seedheads in a light airy cloth bag until fully dry when they can easily be seperated from the stems by rubbing and sieving. Store the seeds in the refrigerator in a brown glass jar with an airtight lid.
