Sow   April to May

Harvest   July as leaves. September & October bulbs

Where to Sow   Sow direct into vegetable plot, sow seeds thinly along rows 2cm (3/4in) deep and  30-45cm (12-18in) between the rows.   
What to do next   Fennel does not like root disturbance so should not be transplanted. Thin seedlings as soon as large enough to handle to 25-30cm (10-12in) apart. Water well until plants are established. As the swollen stems start to develop, gradually build earth up around them to preserve the whiteness and flavour.   

Handy Tip  The whole plant can be used in the kitchen, leaves for fish dishes, stems and bulbs raw in salads or braised as a vegetable.
