Review:

Really good germination. Took the advice and mulched around the bulbs after thinning. Havested beautiful tender bulbs, ate them fresh in a salad with fronds, tart apple, dried cherries, and a homemade lemony vinegrette. Just wish I had planted more.

Review:

I failed miserably but learned a lot. Be careful where you plant these! When I first set them out they killed others so I moved them and then they died! After some reading I figured out my folly. I will definitely try again next year but I will be planting them in their own bucket! Beautiful plant will look great around the patio.

Review:

WOW! This was my first time growing fennel and I had NO idea that the leaf fronds would be so delicious! They are slightly sweet with a mild anise and trace celery taste. While I'm gardening in my greenhouse I like to nibble on the fronts and love to add them to salads with a sweeter dressing. The bulbs are growing nicely and the plants are very pretty. Mine have been growing since late last winter in and out of my greenhouse (when night temps > 40 F) and they've been doing very well. They don't like to have the roots dry out - if this happens the fronds will start to die first, but if you water quickly the plant will be fine. Highly recommend.

Review:

Fennel is easy to grow,it's delicious, it hardly needs watering at all, but,, it has to be growing fast for the leafbases to be tender enough to eat. They have a texture similar to celery and must be ''de-stringed''. They can be cut with the roots left in the ground and they will regrow every year. Stems can be candied or just munched, and seeds are great in cakes and other sweet things, Some people use them in fish dishes too. Seeds are hard to dry as they must be picked before they shatter out and dried in the shade, turning a few times a day as they sweat alot.
