Anise, also called "aniseed," or "anix," is a graceful white feathery annual plant that was first cultivated by the Egyptians in 1500 BC. The seeds can be used whole or crushed in baked goods, pies, applesauce, or cream cheese. Toss the flower or leaf into fruit salads, or use as garnish. It is widely cultivated and used to flavor food, candy, and alcoholic drinks, especially around the Mediterranean. Anise seed plants are also attractive to dogs, in a way similar as catnip to cats.

Planting Instructions:

Since anise does not take well to transplanting, it should either be direct sown or grown as a container plant. When the soil reaches a temperature of 70F, plant seeds 1/4 inch deep in full sun and well draining soil 12-15 inches apart in rows 2 feet apart. Anise needs little attention once established. Water the plants if the soil dries out completely. 

Within-Row Spacing 12-15 inches
Between-Row Spacing 24 inches
