Growing Hyssop from herb seed is so rewarding! Anise Hyssop plants prefer full or partial sun, and mesic to dry conditions. The soil can consist of loam, clay-loam, or contain some rocky material. Start Anise Hyssop herb seeds outdoors once frost danger has passed and temperatures are consistently warm. Press the Anise Hyssop seeds into the soil but do not cover them. Keep the flower seeds moist until germination occurs. The Hyssop herb plant may need some winter protection in zones 4 and 5.
