I am: Bronze fennel

✔︎ Bronze fennel, also known as Foeniculum vulgare 'Purpureum', is a beautiful ornamental herb that is prized for its attractive bronze-colored foliage and feathery, delicate leaves.

✔︎ It has a long history of culinary and medicinal use. The plant's seeds, leaves, and stems have a sweet, anise-like flavor that is used to flavor a variety of dishes, including fish, vegetables, and sauces. Additionally, it has been used for centuries to treat a range of ailments, including indigestion, coughs, and menstrual cramps.

✔︎ Bronze fennel is a favorite food of the black swallowtail butterfly. The plant's leaves provide an important food source for the butterfly's caterpillars, which can often be seen munching away on the plant's delicate foliage. This plant can help attract these beautiful butterflies and support their populations.

Greenling's concept is outstanding. Finally, something blooms even from my non-green thumb. It's a visually incredible bloom and, at the same time, a tasty herb garden with rosemary, mint, basil, and chili peppers. I will treat myself to more Greenlings in the future!
We are enthusiastic Greenling customers. The winter set also looks great on our roof terrace.
Greenling gave me a beautiful summer and was a great eye-catcher on my balcony. Now it's hibernating, and I look forward to filling it next year with great plants from you. Massive credit to the Greenling team. The quality of the plants was excellent, and the harvest was abundant.
I am super satisfied! Especially the watering is just brilliant! You only have to take care of the plants every 1-2 weeks.
Beautiful and healthy plants - pure joy!

The thing looks simply elegant, a noble designer piece. Due to the flat surface in which the planters are inserted, it appears clean and tidy, and the plants give it a nice, slightly wild contrast. It's truly a "mini-garden," an ensemble, and not plants lined up in a row.
The little minigarden is the perfect addition to my hardy year-round planting on my balcony. Being retired, I no longer have the stamina to plant myself, and it saves me the trip to the garden center. This is a solution that has me 100% convinced!
