Does anyone have any tips/advice on germinating Florence Fennel? It grows really well in our region but germination seems a bit hit & miss whether I use a heat pad or not. Cheers...Jan

Fennel might need a period of cold to break its dormancy. try putting it in the refigerator for a while before germinationg it.
