Venkel
Features

Fennel is a perennial herb of which the seeds and the leaves can be used. The leaves of the fennel are used in crudités and soups, and the grounded seeds for tea. During the first year, flowering occurs, but usually too late to produce usable seeds. In the second year, in October and November, ripe seeds appear. The umbels with (almost) ripe seeds are to be cut and dried for several weeks, after which the ripe seeds can be collected. Cover the plants during winter to protect from frost.
