- Detailed Specification
Dill is a very decorative and aromatic herb with an aniseed flavour that is traditionally used with fish dishes, but delicious used in soups, stews and casseroles as well. This very pretty annual has tall, feathery, blue-green foliage similar to fennel and asparagus ferns. Left to flower it will produce sprays of dainty little yellow flowers, which then go on to form seeds that can also be used as an ingredient in curries.
Dill has a spread of 21-30cm and will grow to 81-90cm tall. At its full height it does tend to flop over other plants so stake it with canes to enjoy its lovely feathery foliage, it tends to flop over other plants.
Sow the seeds directly into drills 13mm deep in freshly prepared warm, weed-free soil either in a raised bed or herb garden, thin out seedlings to approx 20cm apart or grow in pots.
Average packet content 500 seeds.
