      I am looking for one that grown for the seeds. The recommended varieties of fennel herb are Foeniculum vulgare dulce and foeniculum vulgare rubrum. Both of them produce high quality fennel seeds. Are either of these seeds sold on this site?

      hello heather, i suppose it depends on who is recommending, because bronze fennel (F. vulgare rubrum) is not even official, and i personally wouldn’t grow it or use it–its a cultivar that has lost something in the translation. Yes, you can call our common fennel F. vulgare dulce, as it is very sweet, and a good kind to grow for fennel seed use. One tiny tip: for edible/tincturing/glycerite use, I like to use the green seed, before it is completely ripe, as it is sweeter when harvested that way. richo

      I don’t have experience with this. The main way i use the plant is in the form of the green seeds or the dried seeds.

      Hello, if I may… As long as as I am confident to an have ample fennel seed harvest, I happily harvest the extra fennel flowers and leaves for cooking. they are delightful when young to either eat raw in salads or add to soups. my favorite is to cook fresh diced leaves and flowers into a curry dish along with beat powder:-)!!!!

      I love fennel for pickling and as a sub for cumin.
      However: Does any other vegetable grow with fennel comfortably? I am worried about planting fennel as I’ve heard it will make an entire garden bed inhospitable to any other plant…?
      Thanks 🙏

      hi johanna, in that fennel brings in a lot of pollinators for other plants it really is a good companion in my opinion. it does get bushy and tall, though, so it can be good to keep it well spaced from other plants. I have these commonly in among my creeping vines such as bitter melon–one of the ideas around companion planting is to use different horizons–one that creeps next to one that leaps, etc. r
