Growing Calendar for Fennel Orion Seeds - Florence (Sweet)
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Add Florence fennel to your kitchen garden for a attractive plant with rare feathery leaves and then a crop you can harvest for a tasty salad with an interesting aniseed twist.
Florence Fennel Orion gives you crops of slightly flattened bulbs which have an aniseed flavour and for the delicate feathery foliage which is also edible.
Delicious either steamed, grilled, roasted, thinly sliced or grated raw to add crunch to crispy salads. High yielding with decorative feathery foliage that looks great in the flower border.
We recommend that you sow seeds thinly from May to June outdoors and don't transplant. The advantage is that you sow once and can leave in their position permanently until harvest time.
Sweet Fennel is an aniseed flavoured bulb.
Sow Outdoors: May-July direct into required harvest postion in rows ½in (1cm) deep and 12in (30cm) apart in a sunny well drained spot.
Thin Out: 12in (30cm) each way.
Plant Out: Fennel does not transplant very well.
Earth up in September or when bulbs start to form.
Surprisingly easy to grow and squirrels, mice, and rabbits leave them alone. (Unlike just about everything else I grow.) Crunchy in salads and delicious braised in good olive oil
Perfect delivery was prompt and the seeds germinated rapidly
Consistent quality and dependability year on year
