DISH OF THE DAY

Gardeners' World - - We Love April -

Pur­ple fen­nel is a great foil to most showy plants, like this fab­u­lous daf­fodil. The young leaves are light and airy, in sum­mer it forms a good sturdy peren­nial and in win­ter its skele­ton stands proud no mat­ter what the weather may throw at us. And you can eat it!

Nar­cis­sus ‘Thalia’

A fine Vic­to­rian va­ri­ety with about three flower heads on each stem. It nat­u­ralises well and is sweetly scented. HxS 35cm x 10cm

Foenicu­lum vul­gare ‘Pur­pureum’

Tall peren­nial with yel­low flow­ers in sum­mer, and ed­i­ble seeds and leaves. Its ten­dency to self seed can be an­noy­ing so be vig­i­lant. HxS 1.6m x 45cm
