Vegetable Seeds - Fennel
Fennel has two main types – common fennel, and florence fennel – which are not to be confused.
Florence fennel is grown for its swollen bulb and eaten as a vegetable, whereas common (or sweet) fennel is a tall (up to 180cm) perennial herb grown for its seeds and feathery foliage and is often used as a substitute for dill. Common fennel does not produce a bulb.
