Fennel bulb has a crisp, delicate aniseed flavour. Shave it into a fresh salad or slaw, or slowly roast it for a caramelised liquorice scented treat. Try Zefa Fino anywhere you'd use celery, and use the feathery leaves for garnish.
Sow direct where they are to grow. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Plant in a well drained, sunny position. Water frequently and regularly - Florence Fennel prefers moist soil. If it gets too dry it will want to 'bolt', or go to seed.
