Dill does not transplant well, so they are best established directly outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Clear your sowing area of all undesired plant life and weeds. Sow the flat, light brown seeds to the sowing area, covering them with roughly 1/8” of topsoil. The seeds will require a bit of direct lighting to properly germinate.
Dill will enjoy an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day. It does particularly well in mild temperatures of 60F to 75F. Dill will grow best in soils that are somewhat dry to moderate, but will need to be well drained. To improve drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to any area that consist of hard, compact soil. Water daily with a light water setting.
Your Dill seeds will begin to show life within 14 to 28 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a mature height of about 30 inches tall and can take up a fair amount of width. Space each plant roughly 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. To harvest, simply pinch the outer leaves, closest to the stem. They are best picked just before the flower heads open and the leaves can be dried & frozen for the best flavor.
