Here is the Bronze Fennel, Foeniculum vulgare. Bronze fennel is a biannual or lives for 2 years but will seed its first year. The feathery foliage provides an attractive contrast to other plants plus a delicious anise flavor to salads and desserts. The seeds are equally flavorful in a wide variety of culinary delights. As fennel grows to four or five feet tall, its yellow-bronze umbelliferous flowers provide nectar that attracts numerous insects. Fennel prefers full sun, well-drained soil and consistent moisture. It will reseed readily and may require some thinning. Don’t confuse this herb with bulb fennel. It never produces a bulb. Easy herb the grow! Open pollinated 30 to 80 days.

Grow cilantro in full sun and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.2 to 6.8; it will tolerate light shade in the South and Southwest where the sun is intense. In the South and Southwest, plant 12 to 18 inches apart in the fall or the spring about a month before the last frost. Fall is the ideal time to plant in zones 8, 9, and 10 because the plants will last through until the weather heats up in late spring. When plants begin to bloom, the foliage becomes scarce; for steady harvest, set out plants every 3 to 4 weeks until the weather gets warm in spring, or until the first frost of fall.
