This purchase is for 30 dill seeds. Dill is easy to grow and packed with flavor! Dill can be directly sown into your soil in early to mid-spring. 


Growing dill from seed is a relatively simple process, and dill is a versatile herb that can be used in cooking, pickling, and as an ornamental plant. Note that dill and dill seed have different culinary uses. However, both are delicious and make this a very versitile herb to grow in your planter box garden. 


Dill prefers full sunlight but can tolerate partial shade. Choose a location in your garden that receives at least 6-8 hours of sunlight per day.


Planting Dill Seeds:
   - Plant dill seeds directly into the soil in early spring or late summer, depending on your climate. Dill is a cool-season herb and can tolerate light frosts.
   - Scatter the seeds on the soil surface and lightly press them into the soil with your hand or a rake. Space the seeds about 18-24 inches apart.


   - Keep the soil consistently moist until the seeds germinate. Water the plants regularly, especially during dry periods.
   - Once the plants are established, dill is somewhat drought-tolerant, but consistent moisture will help ensure healthy growth.


   - Once the seedlings emerge and have a few true leaves (not the first set of "seed leaves", but the second and subsequent sets), thin them to 12-18 inches apart. This allows the remaining plants to have sufficient space to grow.


   - Dill doesn't require heavy feeding. You can add a balanced fertilizer at planting time, and occasional side-dressings of compost during the growing season can help.


   - Green dill leaves can be harvested once the plant reaches about 8 inches in height. Snip the leaves with clean scissors or pruning shears. Rinse before consuming. 
   - Harvest the leaves in the morning when the essential oil content is the highest for the best flavor.
   - To harvest dill seeds, allow the plant to flower (pretty yellow dainty blooms!) and the seeds to form. Cut the seed heads when they turn brown, and hang them upside down in a paper bag to dry. Once dry, shake the bag to release the seeds.


Pests and Diseases:
   - Keep an eye out for pests like aphids and caterpillars. Insecticidal soap or neem oil can be used for control.
   - Dill is generally resistant to many diseases, but providing good air circulation can help prevent issues.


Companion Planting:
   - Dill is a great companion plant for cabbage, onions, and lettuce, but keep it away from carrots, as it may inhibit their growth.



By following these steps and providing the right growing conditions, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of fresh dill for culinary use or as an attractive addition to your garden.
