I grew some Jamie Oliver Fennel seeds this year, They produced a lovely crop. Fennel needs a warm sheltered spot and regular watering. I find the bulbs are better lifted when they are quite small, about tennis ball sized. if allowed to grow too big they become tough. Young tender bulbs make a lovely salad, I also like it braised with parmesan cheese sprinkled on at the end of cooking.
