Identifying Seeds

Hi! I need to buy more of these seeds for my workplace - however no one seems to have any clue what they are. Can anyone help?

Cheers!

    Dill? Or an umbellifer of sorts..
  • One of the umbellifers, but hard to say which.

    What does your workplace do with them?  That might narrow down the possibilities.

    I was wondering about dill too.  Do they smell of anything?

    Could be anything from cow parsley to hemlock.

    They could be Fennel seeds,  do they have a slight aniseed aroma?  Crush a few and smell them.

    But don't try eating any unless you're absolutely sure of the ID - see "hemlock" above.

    Some idea of scale would help me.

    I know they're not, but they do look a bit like Ai Wei Wei porcelain sunflower seeds.

    I'll tag your name @jmagee, in case you use those and haven't seen the responses.

    As @Dovefromabove says - what does your job involve, that you're using them? That could help with suggestions  :)

    These could be Angelica seeds.
