JULIE GERARD’S TIPS FOR HAPPY FENNEL PLANTS

  • Select a sunny, welldraining location to plant.
  • Work some compost into the soil before planting to give your fennel optimal nutrition.
  • Get the seed into the ground after the last frost, but before it gets hot.
  • Be spare with the watering to discourage rot and mildew.
  • As the young fennel grows, thin out the seedlings, leaving about four to six inches between plants.
  • Pull all the weeds around the fennel so it isn’t competing for space, nutrition and water.
