How do I Grow Dill?

Dill has a long taproot and therefore does not like to be disturbed by transplanting. We recommend direct sowing right into their growing space. Plant outdoors once the threat of frost has passed, dill germinates best at 15-21 C (60- 70 F). Sow every few weeks for a continuous harvest throughout the season.

Companion Plants

Because of their umbellifer shape they are highly attractive to beneficials. Corn, cucumbers, lettuce and onions. Avoid planting near carrots and tomatoes.

Harvesting

You can begin harvesting leaves once the plant reaches 6” tall. Once the seed heads form, wait until they turn brown then hang them upside down over a paper bag to recover the seeds. Be careful when growing dill for its seeds that it doesn't self seed into the garden.

Preparing and using

Dill loses most of its flavour once dried so freeze it for the best flavour all winter long. Use it to flavour various types of fish or flavour a jar of homemade pickles.
