Canary Sea Fennel and Mediterranean Sea Fennel are small genera native of rocky sites close to the see on the Canary islands and throughout the Mediterranean region. The Canary Sea Fennel has very broad, light green, strongly aromatic leaves in a dense basal rosette, whereas the Mediterranean Sea Fennel makes bluish-green, deeply cut, slightly succulent leaves. Leaves of both species have an aromatic, slightly bitter and salty taste and may be used in soups and salads. For any rich, very well drained soil in full sun throughout the year and a winter minimum of some 10°C with reduced watering.
Sow pure seeds flat in any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Keep seedlings always sunny, especially in winter.
