With a dwarf habit and excellent resistance to bolting or yellowing, this modern variety makes an attractive feature in the kitchen garden as well as a tasty and productive crop. Use the flavorsome bulbs of Fennel 'Dragon' to create refreshing summer salads as well as in a multitude of cooked recipes. Stagger your sowings through late spring and into summer and you can be harvesting your own home-grown fennel bulbs right through to autumn! Height: 75cm (30in). Spread: 45cm (18”).

Sowing

Sow fennel seeds from April to July in pots or trays using a good free-draining seed compost 6-13mm (1?4-1?2”) deep. Place in a propagator or seal the container inside a polythene bag at constant temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination, which takes up to 7-14 days.

Transplant outside into beds once risk of frost has passed. Allow 30cm (12”) between plants in rows spaced at 45cm (17”) apart.

More Info

Water regularly while in growth and harvest the bulbs between Summer and autumn. Stagger your sowings for a successive crop. Fennel is a tasty accompaniment to fish, seafood, chicken and potatoes. Enjoy fennel raw or cook it by braising, grilling, boiling, sautéing or adding to a soup. The green feathery tops can be used to enhance the flavour of a dish by chopping finely and sprinkling on top as a garnish.
