I've tried to grow bulbing fennel numerous times.  Last year some went to 
seed, obviously, and I have volunteer seedlings in three garden beds and in 
the pathways.  Guess what?  They're forming bulbs.  Therefore, shouldn't 
this crop be planted in fall for the next summer's harvest?  Planting (even 
transplanting seedlings) in spring never has produced bulbs for me.  TIA,
