Alternatively, start seeds indoors in biodegradable pots April 20th and plant outdoors (pot and all) May 20th, spaced 18” apart. Keep seeds moist until germination. Days to germination: 5 - 15. Fennel plants need well drained soil so if you have clay soil, plant them in a raised bed. Bronze fennel will grow in part-shade.
