One of the many vegetables we can regrow from cuttings is fennel. Here is the growth progress of a cutting over just a few days:
Fennel fronds have a taste similar to licorice and make great additions to salads and soups. I love to brew a nice hot cup of tea using fennel leaves as well!
1.) Chop the base of the fennel bulb with a clean knife and place in a shallow bowl of water:
2.) After 24 hours, new growth is already visible:
3.) 48 hours:
4.) 60 hours:
5.) 9 Days:
6.) 13 days later, it is ready to be planted!
6.) Check out these cute little buds forming! So adorable!
7.) Plant in nutrient-rich soil just deep enough to cover the base but not the new fronds in a mostly sunny spot. The soil needs to be well draining or the fennel will rot. This herb is pretty tough though!
Now go get some dirt under your nails!
