Organic Bronze Fennel
Perennial | 30 days to baby leaf harvest | 60 days to full leaf harvest | Foeniculum vulgare
HEIRLOOM Not your classic fennel, we adore the sweetness of Bronze Fennel’s golden-green and coppery feather-like leaves, tossing them in salads and marinades as well as in bouquets. A hardy perennial, Organic Bronze Fennel emerges as the snows melt and quickly rises 4 feet or more, covered in fragrant flowers nourishing multitudes of beneficial pollinators from lacewings to ladybugs to butterflies. We dry the leaves and flowers of Bronze Fennel to enjoy all winter as tea, as well.
Bronze fennel thrives in gardens as well as raised beds and containers, in full sun as well as significant shade. Poor soil, rocky soil? Bronze fennel finds a way with her deep, expansive roots. She produces prolific (not to mention delicious!) seeds that readily germinate, so we grow bronze fennel in our perennial garden and along hedgerows, away from our annual vegetables.
