Abstract: Species from Aggastache genus are part of mint family (Lamiaceae) and their flowers represent a lure for insects (bees, butterflies etc.). The common name of hyssop comes from the plant’s hyssop flavour. Commercially, this plant is considered as having culinary importance. Several varieties of this species were selected in Canada, for their essential oil, which contains methyl chavicol. The species was cultivated in Moldavia, as an experiment, for essential oil production. The herb (Agastache foeniculi herba) is used for therapeutic purposes in treating cardiovascular, nerve and gastrointestinal affections, in treating cold, fever (North America Indies used the infusion for this intent) and as a diaphoretic. It also has antiemetic, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It improves throat pains and cold symptoms. The present study aimed to determine seed germination, by using classical methods- on paper under layer, in Linhardt dishes and in blotting paper envelopes. Seeds were 1, 2 and 3 years old. The results show that seed germination of Agastache foeniculum (Pursh) Kuntze, is influenced by age and external factors (temperature and light). TP (Top of Paper) and BP (Between Paper) methods both influence the germinating faculty.
