This year I decided to try growing some fennel in my garden.
Unbeknownst to me, however, fennel apparently inhibits the growth of
tomatoes -- at least this is what I have been told. Can anyone testify
personally to this? Should I also uproot the fennel once it's big
enough? I have it growing on both ends of my garden, right next to my
Brandywine and Caspian Pink plants. Alternately, is there a "safe"
distance away from my tomatoes where I can transplant the fennel? I'm
also curious if anyone knows how the inhibitive fennel effect works --
via the roots, flowers, fully grown plants, whatever.
Much obliged to all for any shared advice.
