~ FENNEL Seed (FLORENCE TYPE) ~

plant picture 'Colossal' Fennel
We have tried other varieties but are sticking with this one because it’s just great. This strain grows well, forming a really nice big white bulb (though 'colossal' is overstating it a tad in our opinion) with less tendency to bolt than other varieties that we have tried.

Consistently popular every year, it’s one we rely on in the veg patch.

Good for salads or cooking. Sow after mid-summer for autumn harvest

plant picture 'Mantovano' Spring-sowable Fennel
Fennel is normally sown in mid-summer, as it tends to bolt (go straight to seed) if planted in Spring. But this variety was bred for spring sowing, with strong bolt resistance. It produces a nice white bulb, with a slightly flattened shape. It can of course also be sown later in the year as normal.

When? Bolt resistant, particularly worth trying for spring sowing and a summer harvest.

plant picturePerfection Fennel
A new fennel that we have really enjoyed growing for the past few years. It has an excellent flavour and seems really reliable. A superior fennel, making large bulbs, it was awarded 1st place for flavour in the Organic Seed Alliance 2007 Fennel Trials.
