Being aware of the basic growing conditions this plant likes (soil, sun and water) will result in a strong and vibrant plant.
Dill will grow best in a sunny spot with some shelter from the wind. Growing Dill is normally successful in common garden soil. For optimal growing conditions, the soil needs to be deeply dug however. This herb has long roots that need plenty of room to grow. The deeper the root can grow, the better your dill patch will be able to survive wind and storms.
Dill seed germinates quickly. Plant this herb in the spring. Cover the seed lightly with soil, and moisten the garden bed. You should see sprouts growing within about two weeks. After they’ve sprouted, thin the plants to 12” apart.
Don't plant dill near carrots or cabbages, they don't grow well together. Dill planted near onions can be beneficial though.
If planning to harvest only the leaves (and not the seed heads), cut the herb down to about 2" from the ground once you see the flower head start to form. (It may regrow.) You can keep the cuttings in the fridge for several weeks.
Collect the seeds after they’ve ripened (when they turn brown). Cut off the flower heads, leaving a bit of stem attached to the flower head. Bunch a few of the flower stems together. Place a paper bag over the flower heads and secure to the stem bunch. Hang upside down in a warm, airy space to dry.
