Ingrid, I don't know if any of the big seed companies like Yates sell them. I order my fennel seeds from the Italian Gardener. I have also bought seeds from Digger Club in the past (but the quality of the bulbs wasn't as good as the italian ones). Most of the mail-order companies carry them - Cornucopia, Eden Seeds and New Gippsland Seeds are a few. A quick google will take you to their websites. Hope this helps
