There are also many other small insects and skinny bodied wasps all day long. These fennel are called bronze fennel and I grow them from a pack of Burpees seeds from Lowes building supplies (Like Home Depot). I always wondered if the bee keepers hate licorice flavored honey but the bees seem to love these fennel.
