(Foeniculum vulgare var. rubrum)
Fennel Bronze is similar in appearance to dill with an attractive bronze cast to its lacy foliage. This ‘Bronze’ fennel does not form a bulb.
Enrich soil with mature compost. Keep well watered through maturity allowing soil surface to dry between watering. Cut back to the ground at the end of the season after seeds have formed. Fennel has a long tap root which should not be disturbed after planting.
Chopped leaves are excellent in soups, salads and stews. Makes a nice garnish. The leaves are great with fish and can be used to stuff the cavity of a whole fish or to wrap fillets.
