Where to Find Lovage

The Editors's picture

Lovage is certainly not as common as herbs like rosemary or thyme, but it should be available at local nurseries that offer more than just the basic herbs. Otherwise, it appears that it’s currently available from Burpee: https://www.burpee.com/herbs/herb-plants/lovage-prod500802.html
