mint you can find in a lot of community garden. Fennel - you better off buys seed. They germinate easily and grow easily from seed.

There is the florence fennel and normal fennel. The florence fennel I never grow before, but I think seeds available at fef. The normal fennel I've grown before from seeds at a supermarket around my area. It is used as spice by the name of 茴香. It did not develop the bulb, but maybe there is a technique. So yes it can grow, but not easy by cuttings, and there may be no bulb. Someone actually harvest the leaves, but I didn't eat it,I just plant for observation.

There's no need to steal plants that are the product of other people's efforts. A pot of mint from the local nursery/NTUC and fennel seeds cost under $10.

I'm not going to steal the whole plant. I'll ask before I take a cutting.

Is no fun if I just buy pots of plants.

1 packet of fennel seeds below $2

Usually, the common plant you see in gardens is dog fennel. This one is not a fennel, The dog fennel grows easily by cuttings.

Nex Fairprice sells a fistful of herbs (in a container) for $2.99. Around 12-15 cuttings worth. Didn't see fennel, but I there's mint there. They also sell a potted mint for $2.99. Worth considering if your mint seeds don't work out.

Thumbs up! Like!

After 48hrs, the mint leaves still look fresh. Maybe it survived.
No signs of fennel seeds sprouting. I don't know what fennel seeds did I buy. It just say fennel, got it from Giant.

Maybe I will try Thai basil next.

Thank you in advanced!
