Apiaceae

You’ll recognise the apiaceae for their umbrella-like shape, alluring aromas and hollow stems.

There are over 3,700 apiaceae species but particular favourites for pollinating insects and peckish people include angelica, anise, caraway, carrot, celery, chervil, sweet cicely, coriander, dill, fennel, lovage, queen anne’s lace, parsnip and sea holly.

Angelica, caraway, sweet cicely, dill and fennel are particularly great as perennial self-seeding herbs, developing into tall plants yet remaining delicate with their sprays of small flowers and delicious scents.
