4 FOR £10

Bronze fennel, also known as Foeniculum vulgare 'Purpureum', is a perennial herb that belongs to the carrot family. This plant is named for its striking, bronze-purple foliage which can grow up to 1.5m tall. The leaves are finely dissected and delicate, giving the plant an airy appearance. Bronze fennel produces small yellow flowers that bloom in mid-summer, which are attractive to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Bronze fennel is grown both for its ornamental value and for culinary purposes. The plant has a sweet anise flavour and can be used in salads, sauces, and as a garnish. It pairs well with fish and chicken dishes and can also be used in teas and other beverages.

Bronze fennel is a hardy plant that prefers full sun and well-draining soil. It can grow in a range of soils, including sandy, loamy, or clay soils. It is a low maintenance plant that requires little care once established. It is important to note that bronze fennel can self-seed readily.
