At the San Bernardino Regional Seed Library a member kindly contributed fennel seeds. I recalled that fennel had been a problem on the Channel Islands. It took years to contain the invasive plant once it spread out of the sheep rancher's garden. Fennel overtook swaths of otherwise native habitat where rare plants, birds, and Island foxes may have thrived. With much work, these habitats are being restored.  
At the S.B. Seed Library, our notes for fennel read: "invasive - please plant in a contained area!" Thanks for this article. It's important for us to learn and teach one another which plants are invasive, and how to best keep them in check.

I am entering this question into a page on your site that deals with invasive plants. Do you have any publications dealing with invasive plants that are written in Spanish and that are appropriate to hand out to gardeners?
