I am including an article about how and when to harvest the root. As far as the seeds go, you can harvest and grow them, but be aware that if there are any dill, either in a garden or wild, nearby, then they will hybridize. This will mean that the plants will be part dill, and part fennel. Here is the article I promised: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/fennel-vegetables/harvesting-fennel-bulbs.htm
