Growing Fennel as an herb

coll | Jun 23, 2005 07:03 AM

While perusing herbs to round out my garden, I came across a fennel plant. It is called "Rusty" varitey or something similar (too lazy to go outside right now) and has reddish fronds. I love using fennel when I cook, so I had to get it. But when I googled, apparently there are Italian fennel with the thick stems, and other fennel that is used more for seeds. Wondering if anyone has any experience growing, and do you think I can use the stems on this one? If so, how to harvest, all at once or a stem at a time? It't very pretty either way!
