Suggested Planting Requirements: Fennel is very easy to grow and is best if direct sown. The optimal time to plant fennel is either in early spring or late fall so that the plants can mature in cooler fall weather.
Growing Recommendations: As a perennial, fennel should be grown in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. Fennel self-sows easily, so it’s likely that if you plant it once you’ll see fennel popping up in your garden each spring thereafter.
Harvesting & Storing: You can harvest fennel leaves as needed for fresh use. The seeds can be harvested when ripe. To harvest the whole bulb, simply cut the bulb from the soil. The whole bulb can be used in many culinary dishes.
