Single Packet of 500 Seeds
Grow Anise Hyssop from freshly harvested Agastache foeniculum herb seeds. Anise Hyssop is a lovely herb that produces fragrant, purple flowers. The plants themselves reach a mature height of about 30 to 36 inches tall and are greatly used in the herb garden, as well as flower beds, for their gorgeous blooms. Not only will onlookers be envious of their beauty, but they will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden. Butterflies, bumblebees, hummingbirds and ladybugs will cling to these beauties all summer long.
Grown as a perennial flowering herb, Anise Hyssop will establish a deep root system. The plants will grow fairly quickly the first season, only to wilt on the surface with the first killing frost. If temperatures are not extremely harsh, your Anise Hyssop plants will later return the following season from roots. Grow and enjoy this beautiful herb along driveways, walkways, borders and patios. They can even be sown by the masses in a naturalized setting, or anywhere you'd like to add some color. Anise Hyssop is also greatly used in pots & containers as well.
Sowing The Seed
Anise Hyssop can be grown either indoors or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow the seeds directly to the surface of the soil, allowing direct sunlight to reach them. This is crucial for proper germination of Anise Hyssop seeds. Transplant the entire peat pots, or direct sow in the garden when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.
Anise Hyssop herbs will enjoy an area that receives full sunlight to partial shade, with temperatures of at least 65F or above. The soil should be rich, fertile and filled with organic matter. Just make sure that it is well drained as well. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water daily with a light mist setting to avoid disrupting the seeds.
Germination & Growth
Your Anise Hyssop herb seeds will begin to germinate within roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of roughly 30 to 36 inches tall and can be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. The plants display fragrant, purple flowers, atop green foliage. Anise Hyssop is known to attract an array of beneficial insects, such as butterflies, bumblebees, ladybugs and even hummingbirds as well.

Answer: Our seeds are contained within a temperature controlled facility in airtight containers. When we ship our seed products to customers, we fill a small portion of packets that sell on a weekly basis. We do not print an expiration date on the packets since the large majority of seeds technically do not expire for long periods of time, IF they are stored in the proper conditions. If you plan to store or save your seeds for the following year, we suggest placing them in a ziplock bag, later storing them in a dark, cool and dry area of the home.

Answer: At this time, we are focused on remaining solely online. We do not send paper catalogs in an effort to save more trees, as well as keep our prices low.
Question: I did not receive an invoice for my order.
Answer: We do not send paper invoices with our orders since the invoice can be viewed online with your Seed Needs account. You will also receive an invoice / order confirmation through email.
Question: What is the difference between a hybrid variety and a GMO based seed product.
Answer: Hybrids are a NATURAL process of cross pollinating two species, thus producing a first generation hybrid (F1.) For example: Mixing a red, double blooming, single stem sunflower, with a yellow, multi branching sunflower might result in a orange-red, double blooming, multibranching plant.
GMO based seed products are a completely different and unatural process of gene splicing in a laboratory. The process entails the introduction of a separate biological kingdom, such as a bacteria, or a pesticide. This bacteria or pesticide is then eaten directly by the consumer when the crops reach maturity. (BAD NEWS)
Question: Can you ship these seeds overseas?
Answer: At this time we only ship within the United States and Canada.
