  • Characteristics: A fast-growing upright biennial with slender green leaves and umbrella clusters of small, white flowers blossoming in summer.
  • Growth and Spread: Ultimate height and spread of up to 0.5m.
  • Care and Maintenance: Caraway loves to soak up the sun - will do best in a south-facing spot. It prefers well-drained soil and doesn’t like to be transplanted once established. Cut back to the ground and mulch at the end of autumn. This will promote healthy growth the following year.
  • Period of Interest: Foliage emerges in spring. Clusters of delicate white flowers blossom in summer and are followed by aromatic seeds.
  • Top Tip: Avoid planting Caraway next to Dill or Fennel. This prevents cross pollinating affecting taste and flavour.

Caraway not only makes a striking visual addition to any garden setting, it also has culinary value with a flavour not unlike Anise. The leaves are a lovely addition to salads, while the seeds can be used in baking. The seeds are also popular for cooking Indian dishes. When the plant dies back the roots can be dug up, brushed off and peeled to cook and eat like parsnips.

Caraway acts as a digestive aid and, interestingly, has a history of being a key ingredient of magical love potions!

Also known as Ammi or Persian Cumin, Caraway is a bushy biennial that will flower and produce seeds in its second year. This bushy herb is highly aromatic, and its nectar-rich blossoms attract bees and other beneficial insects to the garden - which is good news for other crops you wish to pollinate.
