Dill

(Anethum graveolens) A popular culinary herb with an ancient history, dill is a flavorful and aromatic addition to many dishes. Ideal germination temperature is 65-70F. Seeds will germinate in 7-21 days. Dill prefers to be direct sown, ⅛ to ¼ inch deep, into the garden. Plant two to four inches apart. Plants develop a long taproot and do not transplant well. Dill prefers well-draining, poor soil for best flavor. Harvest leaves as needed, or cut the entire plant when seeds have formed at the tops of the 3 to 4 foot tall plants. Dill easily reseeds into the garden. If you’re using dill for pickling, plant every couple of weeks until midsummer to ensure a constant supply into fall. Dill attracts numerous beneficial insects and is a host plant for the caterpillar of the black swallowtail butterfly!
