How To Grow Caraway From Seed: Caraway seeds can be started inside, 3 to 4 weeks before the average last frost, or planted directly in the garden in spring when frost risk has passed, or else in the Autumn. 

Using seedling modules or small pots, sow a pinch of Caraway seeds in each pot and lightly cover with compost. 

When the seedlings develop their first set of true leaves, thin them and transplant them into bigger pots or to their place in the garden, once the risk of frost has passed.
