Official Name: Anethum graveolens

General description: Dill is an annual, self-seeding plant with feathery green leaves. It is used most commonly in soups and stews or for pickling.Dill (Anethum graveolens) is an annual herb in the celery family Apiaceae. It is the only species in the genus Anethum. Dill is grown widely in Eurasia where its leaves and seeds are used as a herb or spice for flavouring food. Dill grows up to 40–60 cm (16–24 in), with slender hollow stems and alternate, finely divided, softly delicate leaves 10–20 cm (4–8 in) long. The ultimate leaf divisions are 1–2 mm (0.04–0.08 in) broad, slightly broader than the similar leaves of fennel, which are threadlike, less than 1 mm (0.04 in) broad, but harder in texture. The flowers are white to yellow, in small umbels 2–9 cm (0.8–3.5 in) diameter. The seeds are 4–5 mm (0.16–0.20 in) long and 1 mm (0.04 in) thick, and straight to slightly curved with a longitudinally ridged surface.

How to grow:

WHEN TO PLANT DILL

  • Dill seeds should be sown directly into the garden (dill doesn’t transplant well) after the threat of frost has passed in the spring. See local frost dates.
  • The soil temperature should be between 60 and 70ºF (15 and 21°C) for the best results.
  • Plant dill every couple of weeks until mid summer to ensure a constant supply. 

CHOOSING AND PREPARING A PLANTING SITE

  • Plant in full sun.
  • Choose a site that has well-draining soil that’s rich in organic matter. The pH of the soil should be between slightly acidic and neutral.
  • In your garden, plant dill next to cabbage or onions, but keep it away from carrots. Learn more about companion planting.
  • Make sure to shelter dill from strong winds.

HOW TO PLANT DILL

  • Sow dill seeds about ¼-inch deep and 18 inches apart.
  • After 10 to 14 days, young dill plants should appear in the soil. Wait another 10 to 14 days, then thin the plants to about 12 to 18 inches apart (if they aren’t already spaced well enough).

HOW TO GROW DILL

  • Water the plants freely during the growing season.
  • In order to ensure a season-long fresh supply of dill, continue sowing seeds every few weeks. For an extended harvest, do not allow flowers to grow on the plants.
  • If the dill was allowed to go to seed last year and the soil hasn’t been disturbed too much, more dill plants will grow the next season.

HOW TO HARVEST DILL

  • As soon as the plant has four to five leaves, you can start harvesting. Pinch off the leaves or cut them off with scissors.
  • If you have a lot of plants, you can pinch off entire stalks.

Benefits:You'll also get a significant boost of vitamin C, an important antioxidant that helps your body to resist infection. Dill is also a good source of fiber, folate (important for cell division and production of DNA), calcium for healthy bones, riboflavin for cell function and development, manganese, and iron
