Dill Planting Tips
- Both the greens and seeds can be used in cooking. The leaves are a classic herb, and can be cut immediately, while the seeds should be brown before harvesting, and can be eaten fresh or dried for the winter.
- Dill likes rich soil, so amend with compost or cured manure, but make sure the soil is well drained. Dill produces a deep taproot, similar to a carrot (but don’t eat it), so make sure it has some room to grow down.
- Dill is self seeding.
- Dill likes full sun.
