Homeowner Growing Tips: These plants develop better flavor when not fertilized. Many sources suggest planting fennel away from other garden plants, and do be aware that they are self seeding, so you'll want to remove any flowers that form to prevent lots of new seedlings the next season. If using a container to grow fennel it will need to be quite deep, as it has a long taproot.
