Fennel –Foeniculum vulgare – is a naturalised plant of ancient origins, that grows on bare ground and is well suited to coastal situations, on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. The tall plants have feathery leaves, that smell of aniseed when crushed. Fennel is a good nectar plant for insects such as Bees. The attractive yellow flowers appear from July to September and are delicate and lace-like. Fennel can be grown particularly well against a wall, and as a backdrop to plants such Wild Carrot, Ladies Bedstraw, Viper’s Bugloss, Yellow-horned Poppy, and Sea Pink.

How to grow Fennel Seeds
Fennel seeds should be sown in spring either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Fennel seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year. After flowering the dead stems can be cut back close to the ground in autumn.
