58 days from setting out transplants.

We are delighted to offer the first-ever fennel seed to win an All-America Selection! Antares Hybrid is so improved in every way that it might as well be a new type of plant. Stronger licorice fragrance, sweeter bulb, more ornamental ferny dark green foliage, earlier maturity, better bolt resistance -- these are just the highlights of Antares's many merits!

Ready less than 2 months after setting out the transplants in spring, this fabulous herb doubles as a vegetable (the white bulb is sweet and absolutely delicious) and triples as an ornamental (the ferny foliage is splendid in the garden, container, and indoor arrangements). Superbly fragrant, easy to grow, this sun lover thrives anywhere you have a few inches of sunny soil. You will want to tuck it into annual container plantings (petunia, calibrachoa, geranium, and verbena are among its many friends), dot it among your tomatoes and peppers to bring in good bugs and repel bad, and use it as a green backdrop to just about anything in the sunny annual border.

Antares Hybrid harvests earlier than older varieties, and also resists bolting a whole lot better. If you want to grow this plant for its sweet, aromatic, nutritious 4- to 5-inch white bulb, you can get there sooner than ever -- and leave it in the garden a bit longer, too, if you can't harvest it promptly!

Many gardeners grow fennel for its swallowtail butterfly food. During the caterpillar stage, swallowtails rely on fennel as a food source, and if you are willing to let them do a bit of chewing, the butterflies will reward you with their beautiful presence in your garden! Antares attracts many pollinators (it sets seed, after all), but the swallowtails are its special companions. Make it an integral part of any butterfly accent garden in your landscape.

All parts of fennel are aromatic, imparting a sweet anise, or licorice, scent and flavor. Kids (or adults) who like black licorice will love chomping on the raw bulbs of fennel! Growing 15 to 24 inches tall and just about 9 inches wide, Antares is an elegant columnar ornamental plant in the annual bed as well as a delicious edible.

Start seeds indoors and transplant the young plants into rich, light soil in a warm location. Water regularly throughout the season to help the large, round bulb develop well. Pkt is 50 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
