Please Note

These seeds should ideally be sown this season. All our packets have ‘Sow by Date’ guidance on them, this is the date the seeds should be sown in order to achieve the highest rate of germination. You will still see the same high-quality plants if sowing in seasons after the ‘Sow by Date’ but may see a reduction in germination rate

  • Attractive bronze purple feathery garden fennel
  • Handsome perennial
  • Perfect for pollinators

Particularly fine clouds of feathery bronze-purple foliage are followed by late summer large heads of tiny yellow flowers are quite magnificent in borders.

The enormous Foeniculum vulgare 'Purpureum' (Fennel Bronze) looks fantastic as a centrepiece for a sunny herb garden. This popular perennial is often planted on its own for impact or can be combined with bergamot in flower borders. With plenty of humus and water in dry weather, plants develop into magnificent clumps of airy feathery foliage, crowned in late summer with large heads of tiny flowers. Bees absolutely love this herb for its wonderful nectar.

The seeds are as useful as herbs as the leaves, and can be left to ripen as a crop

If you want to grow exclusively for its foliage, we suggest removing the yellow flower heads to prevent to herb from self-seeding. When the flowers have are spent cut them back to 30cm from the ground.

Although all parts of this plants are edible, bronze fennel in particular is valued for its seeds because they have a milder more delicate taste than other varieties of fennel. Bronze fennel seeds may be used in baked goods like breads and biscuits. They pair well with other vegetables like carrots and make an attractive garnish for salads, pasta and rice dishes. The seeds may also be used to make a delicious fennel tea.
