Also asked, how do you take care of anise plants?

Anise requires a fairly alkaline soil pH of 6.3 to 7.0. Anise plants need full sun and well-drained soil. Directly sow the seed into a prepared seed bed that is free of weeds, roots and other debris. Growing anise needs regular water until the plants are established and then can tolerate periods of drought.

How do you harvest anise?

Anise Seed Harvest Methods Instead, snip the stems below the flower heads. If the seeds are still green, tie the flowers together into a bundle and hang them upside down in a cool, airy place. Make sure to put a container or a cloth beneath them to catch the seeds, which should ripen and dry out naturally.
