The swollen leaf bases of "bulbs" are delicious chopped raw in salads or braised and served with fish or meat.
They have a texture similar to celery and taste reminiscent of aniseed.
The attractive ferny foliage is also edible and is a great garnish.

How to Guide
Sow seeds thinly in a pre-watered shallow row, lightly covering with a little soil. Keep soil moist, as dry conditions impair germination. Allow 30cm between rows.
Potting on/Thining Out
Thin seeds to about 20cm apart when large enough to handle. Ensure remaining seedlings are still firm in the soil
Water plants generously in dry weather
