Plant fennel in an area of the garden that receives full sun exposure and has loose, deep soil. I've heard that it's a terrible companion plant for just about any other plant. I disagree with the person about cilantro growing in cooler temps. Getting cabin fever? The Three Sisters Garden was the first example of companion planting in Native American culture. The feathery, yellow-green foliage and tall stature are attractive in informal landscapes. If you have Florence fennel (for bulbs) it might be ok in a pot but the herb fennel has a long tap root and might not be happy confined. Inhaling herbs was often a means of treating respiratory disorders. It is an aromatic perennial that grows to about five feet in height, having dark green, feathery leaves, umbels of yellow flowers, and small, ridged, oval-shaped seeds, which are gathered in the autumn.
Another myth gets retold.
Aargh. The tomatoes are planted close together so they'll shade out the cilantro in no time. @yvonnecmartin, the daylillies are also a wonderful suggestion. Happy gardening in Hawaii.
It’s that simple. In my own experience fennel has no effect on oregano, aquilegia, hardy geraniums and a host of other perennials which it intermingles with in my garden.
I might pick up a couple bronze fennel plants I saw at a local nursery...I've heard Florence fennel doesn't have as much flavor as the herb fennel...I like the good anise flavor (has got to be one of my favorites) and I don't want something that's too weak. Fennel is in general a poor companion plant in the garden. Fennel is one of the oldest cultivated plants and much valued by the Romans. I think it will fill up the space perfectly. Fennel generally takes about 100 days to reach maturity. Fennel can be grown in large pots as well. Just curious, but what other plants are allelopathic that I should know about? Fennel grows back by itself each year, so dedicate a space in the garden to fennel if you plan to keep it going. Also very close by is a purple sprouting broccoli, an alder bush, some leeks, lucerne, and some strawberries--and plenty of dandelion and buttercup. Is… Q. Orchid Plant From Costa Rica - My son brought me back a "real orchid plant" from Costa Rica. I'd like to see what a dill x fennel plant would taste like (just out of curiosity) but I probably won't bother with that. I plan to keep this pot in the garden with all of my other plants (stevia, parsley, beets, tomato, basil). It is itself inhibited by wormwood and coriander[14, 18]. I love the fennel its such a beauty to the garden but it might have to go before anything else dies. If you plant fennels in an area, leave some buffer zone around it, such that their roots cannot go beyond that.I would say 6-8 inchs should be enough.
Trying to create an experiment outside the laboratory that controls for all the other possible explanations for nearby plants being affected has proven to be very difficult. I will pick out some of the bulbs when they are big enough, and let the remaining plants go to seed. Fennel and marigolds are trap plants that attract aphids to attack them instead of the other plants in the garden. I know some botanists that would be extremely excited to be able to catalog a Foeniculum (fennel) and Anethum (dill) hybrid as there are no examples in any of the literature. Speaking of black walnut, I was digging the first hole in my garden in which I planted a tomato....and at the bottom of the hole, I found a sprouting walnut. I have a small 50'x100' lot but grew up growing our own food. Cilantro will not do well in heat and bright sun, which is fine for tomatoes.
Can't wait to get to that Spring gardening? Grow instead in pots away from the garden plot, or at the very least at the back of the garden. With yours planted in such close proximity to such a variety of plants I think I'll just give it a shot around the garden. It is not about planting closer.
It grows fine next to Penny Royal and knockout roses. I would post this in the Companion Plants forum, but that doesn't seem to get much traffic - there is a large pile-up of unanswered threads in that forum. So I grow a few dwarf fruit trees like peaches, apple, and cherries.
