What are the pros? Good germination, easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

I started these in a tray. They transplanted well and were easy to grow. I kept them mulched during our very warm Central Texas Spring. They held up well in the heat. We have mild winters, so I like to grow some things all winter under row covers. This Fennel survived light freezes under row covers, but stopped growing once we got some temps in the upper 20's. Watch for Caterpillars in the Spring!

What are the pros? Gets big

What are the cons? No bulbs, prolific

Review:

My entire motivation for growing fennel was for the glorious bulbs! This variety gave me none at all. I am inexperienced with fennel, so maybe it was something I did, but either way I won't be using precious garden space on it again.

What are the pros? Light anise flavor

What are the cons? None

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.

What are the pros? Beautiful plant, easy to start

What are the cons? Companions are limited

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.
