@ Janet You may have planted the wrong kind of fennel There are two kinds. Florence Fennel produces the bulb at the bottom and Bronze Fennel just goes to seed and is usually grown for the seeds or the feathery leaves. Bronze fennel is the one that grows along the sides of the roads (feral) in many parts of Australia.
