Glycyrrhiza glabra Liquorice Herb Plant


Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.

The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.

Glycyrrhiza glabra (Liquorice)Herb in 9cm Pot

This culinary herb is a perennial native to the Mediterranean region and will grow taller each year. It will take approximately 3-4 years of growth for the roots to reach a good size for cultivation. Liquorice is an attractive addition to the herb garden in its own right, but also a wonderful herb to try to cook with your own cultivated Liquorice. 

Herb Usage

The root can be used raw or used as flavouring, or dried and used for chewing, you can also make a tea from the roots and the powdered root can also be used as a sweetener  for drinks.

    Liquorice Herb Plant

    Posted by Chris Friend on 6th Jun 2024

    I had been trying to obtain some liquorice plants for some time and eventually found them listed on Hooks Green site. Unfortunately, they were out of stock at the time but I was able to leave a request for notification when back in stock. True to their promise, the Hooks Green team emailed me when the plants were available. I order five and they were all delivered very well packed and in excellent condition. The plants are now in place and seem to be doing well.
