        Which is why I was certain it was Fennel, and I wasn't mistaking Dill for Green Fennel.

        I grow both green and bronze Fennel, which self seed all over my plots and use them extensively when cooking Mackerel I've caught. The trouble is that overwintering (perrenial) plants run to seed [1] before the Mackerel season's over, so I save seeds to sow each year and produce new plants/leaves which follow on from my established Fennel plants .

        [1] But they produce masses of flowers that attract a mass of Hoverflies.
