Erect growing plant with dark green foliage. Fern-like leaves of aniseed flavour used for flavouring. Garden fennel is a culinary herb with very finely divided foliage. It makes a dramatic statement in the herb garden, where it combines well with woody herbs such as sage and rosemary.
It will grow in most soil conditons provided it is planted in a sunny spot. In summer plants are topped with a wonderful display of showy yellow flower heads.The seeds are as useful herbally as the leaves, and may be left to ripen as a crop.
Qty - 200 fennel seeds
