    Default liquorice plant seeds

    We have just bought some liquorice plant seeds, does anyone have any advice as to the best way to grow them, also are they difficult/easy?

    If you take the time to read through this, the section on cultivation is at the end of this link - hope this helps - and good luck - don't know anyone else who has grown or tried to grow this - though you never know, there may be a liquorice fanatic somewhere out there on the 'Vine

    I think they grow easy enough as it used to be grown in large quantities around Pontefract in Yorkshire for the sweet industry, the problem comes with the harvesting of the root as they go down a long way !!!

    A quick google threw this up (if you'll pardon the phrase)

    Lets hope both me and the soil of South Wales is up to the task, will have a read with the aid of a glass of red wine.
