Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)



Fennel is a graceful, attractive plant whose leaves and seeds have a delightful, licorice aroma. Use leaves in salads and fish dishes, and as a garnish. The seeds are used to flavor sauces, soups, and baked goods. Fennel plants add a light, airy touch to the garden, and combine well with flowers and other herbs. Juice from Fennel herb  is used to treat chronic coughs and  upper respiratory tract in both children and adults. Plant Fennel seeds in early spring and again in early fall. Don't sow during hot summer weather or plants will go to seed before reaching harvest size. Fennel does not transplant well. Water regularly and fertilize when plants are 6" tall. If grown for leaves only, cut off flower stems. Harvest Fennel leaves anytime after plants begin vigorous growth. When first seeds begin to darken and fall, cut entire stem and place upside down in paper bag. The bag will catch the seeds as they dry and fall.
