Fennel - one more time!

If you follow my blog, then you know about my struggles with growing fennel (anise). In the end, my attempt to grow it was a complete bust. Not only did the garden invaders cause trouble, the mammoth zucchini plants took over, blocking out all sun. Hence, no fennel!

I'm not going to give up though! This year I'm planting it in a different spot. I've also now learned that fennel grows best on its own. So, I've got a special place for it this year. We shall see what happens!


  1. good luck. I wouldn't even know where to begin. so I stick to flowers.

  2. I love flower gardening too! But I like the idea of growing some of my own food, so I'll keep at it,

  3. That explains why the fennel grows better where ever the seeds fall! Good luck with it~~gail

  4. Good luck with the fennel! Hopefully without the zucchini and garden invaders, you will do very well.I grow some tomatoes and beans with success, as well as some herbs, but I have not had luck with some other things. I planted over 200 carrots, and only eight have come up!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
