Foeniculum vulgare 'Giant Bronze'

Herb Fennel - (not to be confused with the bulb, Florence Fennel) - is an aromatic perennial herb with both culinary and medicinal uses. It has feathery leaves, umbels of small yellow flowers and an anise flavour. 'Giant Bronze' has bronze coloured feathery leaves, and flowers from mid Summer to late Summer


Flowering

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Fennel bears umbels of yellow flowers in Summer

 

Propagate by seed

From Early Summer TO Mid Summer

Fennel does not like to be moved or transplanted, so sow in the permanent growing site, which needs to be a sunny site with rich, free draining soil. Sow the seeds in early Summer in situ - this will help to avoid the plant bolting (going to seed prematurely). Sow seeds 1/2" deep, and water well. Thin seedlings to 30 cms.

 

Planting

From Early Summer TO Early Summer

Fennel does not always transplant well, and is inclined to bolt if it is transplanted, so the best way is to grow from seed where it is required. The alternative is to grow in a container.and plant out in early Summer
