Fennel seed from Grover
Fennel requires extra care during cultivation. It is a hardy perennial but vulnerable to attacks by weeds and pests. Fennel seed sowing is done in July and October. Harvesting is done during January and March. The flower heads are harvested before the seeds ripen. When completely dry, the seeds are threshed out. This process helps to preserve shape and lock in aroma.
