fennel

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.

Hi, I actually dug them up last week and replanted them a bit deeper. I think you could well be right about the odd weather earlier this year. They are in a hot dry spot so fingers crossed for next spring!

I have/had a lovely group of eremerus which flowered beautifully in their first year. This year only one bothered to burst into bloom. HAs anyone any ideas why they should stop flowering?
