I have a tall plant in the garden which looks like a Cosmos, but smells of Liquorice. Any ideas ?



I repeat, Fennel? (Foeniculum vulgare)

Got your PM, assume that's what it is then, but the smell is supposed to be aniseedy, though I guess that's close to liquorice really. Good with fish, and with other herbs in potato salad...

Love cosmos and sowed loads of seed. I wondered why they didn't come up this year and then realised that I had pulled them all up thinking they were Nigella! So many things look the same when tiny.
