Fennel seeds can be started indoors or planted directly outdoors.
To germinate fennel successfully, prepare a nutrient rich seedbed with well-drained soil since too fertilized soil may reduce the aromatic flavour of the plant.
Seed should be sown at a depth of 1 to 1.5 inches leaving 10 to 15 inches distance between plants and 24 inches distance between rows.
The soil temperature of 16 to 32°C is ideal for the growth of fennel plant.
After sowing, water everyday until the shoots appear. Once shoots are visible, water twice weekly in moist soil and more frequently in dry soil.
Two most common pests that attack fennel are aphids and armyworms. Both of these pests have common natural predators like the ladybug and dragonfly.
The most important thing to ensure while preparing the soil for fennel is that the soil is well drained soil. If you’re planting in a pot, it is much more easier to control the properties of soil. Hence, choose an area of your garden/home that drains well.
Fennel grows well in cool temperature in the range of 16 to 32°C.
how to harvest
Fennel stalks should be cut just before flowering.
Seed heads should be collected promptly before they shatter.
The seed heads are ready to harvest when they turn brown in color. Once the stalks have been harvested, the bulb can also be cleaned and stored.
