My fennel has bolted and gone to seed thanks to the wonderful mix of weather we have been having. If I cut back the flowers will the bulbs fatten up or is it a lost cause. My first time growing them.

Bulb fennel or florence fennel can be tricky and hates stop-start conditions. Cutting the flower off will not work as the plant has gone into a reproductive phase.
