Foeniculum vulgare 'Purpureum'

Use the delicate feathery fronds of fennel in salads and many dishes for a fresh aniseed kick. You can eat the seeds fresh, mix them in salads or make into a soothing tea. They can also be dried and used in a similar way. Fennel attracts hoverflies which we love as they munch on aphids. Use a stalk of fennel in a face steam for a deep skin cleanse. 

Best grown outdoors, this hardy perennial plant is stronger than it looks. Grow in a sunny position, and cut back old growth. Do not grow near dill or coriander. 

All herbs are planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage. 

Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot. (If you'd like it delivered in a compostable POSIpot instead of the plastic nursery pot, let us know!)
