How To Grow 50 seeds/gram Sow seed directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in mid to late May or from mid August through to early September. Seed can also be started indoors in a soil-less mix 6-8 weeks before last frost date - use plantable peat or paper pots as lovage does not transplant well. Keep temperature at 21 C (70 F) for the 10-20 day germination period, then grow on at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of frost has passed. Sow seed 6 mm (1/4") deep and 7.5 cm (3") apart then thin to 60-90 cm (24-36") apart in the garden.
