Cutting celery and lovage are almost indistinguishable when the lovage plant 
is young.  And the flavor is very similar.  I understand that lovage plants 
can grow to 6' tall while cutting celery stays short.  My one lovage plant 
in the greenhouse is only about 18" tall at the moment.

Oriental seed suppliers have whiote, golden and two different green versions 
of it.  If you have an Asian or Phillipini clientele there is a market for 
it, but it is sold for pennies at the Asian markets.  check it out at
