Direct sow fennels seeds outdoors from March to July into well prepared soil in full sun when temperatures reach around 13-18C (55-64F). Sow seeds thinly into drills 1cm (0.5") deep and 38cm (15") apart. When fennel seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12") apart. Make regular sowings for a successional harvest.
When growing fennel, keep plants well watered, particularly during hot, dry periods. Fennel leaves can be harvested at any time. For fennel seeds, allow the flowers to fade and harvest once the seed heads have fully ripened. The tasty stems can be cut when they reach tennis ball size.
