Dill – Bouquet – Anethum graveolens – Annual Herb

Soil & Water: Dill grows well in rich, well-drained soils, but can grow in very marginal soils. It prefers full sun and heavy water. If it likes where it is, it can reseed prolifically.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds directly after the last frost. Dill has a naturally low germination rate; 60% is typical. Seeds can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost, but dill does not like to be transplanted. It’s best left alone once established.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest leaves as soon as the plant is large enough. Gather flower umbels when most of the flowers have opened. Leave some flowers to develop into seed and harvest them when they have turned a brownish-tan. Planting Tip: Plant dill to be harvest-ready at the same time as cucumbers for the perfect pickling pair.
