Surprisingly I’m fairly sure that I’ve not mentioned fennel before.
I think that plot neighbour George gave me a couple of plants last year which I planted near the rosemary that is in the stone feature.
It’s an imposing looking perennial that is around six tall. In the summer it had lots of blue-green feathery foliage and yellow flowers. The aniseed flavour is pronounced and even I can smell it. I grow it for decorative purposes as it adds height and interest, and because the flowers are a magnet for beneficial insects.
Have a good weekend!

I have finally got round to doing a Plot plants page listing all these occasional posts, in date order, which shows as a link at the top of this page under the header picture.
