CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Plant Orion organic fennel seeds in raised beds or garden beds and expect fast, vigorous growth of large, firm fennel bulbs with refined, crisp texture, strong anise flavour, and high water content. Vigorous hybrid growth and uniformity set Orion apart from other Florence fennel varieties, but the bulbs keep particularly well after harvest, so this is a great choice for the market gardener and home gardener alike. Be sure to try our Citrus Arugula Salad with Shaved Fennel recipe - it's just one of the many ways to prepare this delicious vegetable. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

These seeds are coated with an inert, organic form of graphite. This helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

Matures in 80 days. (Hybrid seeds)

How To Grow

Lacy, beautiful fennel plants grace planter boxes and the delicate leaves are lovely in salads. Like dill and parsley, the flowers of fennel are intensely attractive to beneficial insects. Grow fennel in a sunny position in well-drained loamy soil. If your soil is on the clay side, add some sharp sand to the bed. In the first year, fennel will grow to about 60cm (24″) tall, but in mild areas plants can reach 2m (6′) tall. Follow these how to grow fennel instructions for perfect fennel every year.
