I planted some fennel seeds, just because they were free with a magazine and I had a bit of spare room after harvesting my potatoes. Most of them germinated but were promptly mown down by an over athletic fox who has decided that particular raised bed is the best place to jump our hedge. So only three plants survived and, frankly, I forgot all about them until now. Exactly how big are they supposed to get, anyway? The bulbs are at least 12 inches wide and nearly twice that high and the foilage is like a bush.That definitely seems to be a lot bigger than any pictures I'm seeing. Why am I looking at pictures in the first place? Because I have absolutely no idea what to do with fennel anyway so was googling for recipies... Does anyone know whether you can make fennel wine?
