Very easy to look after, dill is a pretty culinary herb with feathery foliage and a mild aniseed flavour, grown for the leaves, seeds and delicately flavoured flowers.

Sowing Instructions

Sow: your dill seeds either indoors in trays or outdoors from April in prepared and fertile soil.  Lightly cover with a little compost.  Dill will happily grow in containers, on its own or as part of a mixed pot of herbs.

Aftercare: thin seedlings to 20cm when large enough to handle.  Other than that, just keep plants well watered to try to prevent them running to seed. 

Harvest: leaves from around 8 weeks after sowing. As long as you leave 3cm of growth, the plant will re-sprout.  If seeds are required, allow the plant to flower, collect the seed heads in a paper bag and hang them upside down until the seeds fall.

Tip: dill will self-seed if seed heads are not removed.

Usage

Tasty and aromatic, dill is most frequently used in fish dishes but is also delicious in curries and can add a pretty twist to summer salads. Dill flowers are also great with fish or vegetable dishes and add a divine flavour to omelettes and pickles.
