Organic Fennel - Zefo Fina (Approx 50) in a hand sealed kraft envelope.
Used as both a delicious vegetable and as a herb or garnish. When raw it emitts an almost aniseed or liquorice like scent. Don't worry, though if thats not your kind of thing, once cooked it completely changes and has a much more delicate and subtle taste. Whilst it looks nothing like its Carrot cousins, it can be added to the same meals and cooked in the same way.
When To Sow - When to Harvest
Growing Tips:To ensure the highest rate of germination and to account for the unpredictable British weather, grow these indoors on a warm sun soaked window cill or inside a greenhouse. Once the seedlings are large enough, you can then begin to plant these into pots. If the weather allows, you could also plant directly into your vegetable plot.
Keep well watered if planting indoors, but do not allow for the soil to become consistently soaked. This can cause mould, hinder root development and be detremental to the plants health.
