400+ ‘Florence’ Fennel Seeds

Foeniculum vulgare

Non-GMO, Heirloom, Open Pollinated

Fennel grows similarly to dill, growing almost 3 feet tall with yellow flowers that attract butterflies and pollinators. Florence Fennel has a signature anise or licorice flavor. The bulbs, stalks, and seeds are all edible on this plant, making it a great addition to your food and herb gardens.

Ideal germination temperature for these seeds is 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit. Direct sow in spring after your last frost date, barely covering seeds. You can also sow fennel seeds outside 6-8 weeks before your first frost, for a fall harvest. Fennel may reseed itself rapidly and can become weedy.
