I have some gorgeous bronze fennel growing in my garden as a sculptural plant. Can you tell me if it is edible, as with other fennels, and if so what part of the plant can be used?
you can eat the leaves and the seeds. It's just fennel, Foeniculum vulgare
In the sticks near Peterborough
Ah that's really helpful
Thank you nutcutlet
Every year I collect loads of fennel seeds which I sow thickly in small trays of coir. After two weeks on the kitchen window sill I take a pair of scissors to the seedlings and eat them in sandwiches.
I use fennel seeds in a honey spiced cake and also for fennel tea which is good for the digestive system.
