Dill is a sweetly aromatic herb that plays a key role in traditional recipes like potato salad, Hungarian mushroom soup, and–of course–pickled vegetables. Share some with your butterfly friends, too: the caterpillars of yellow swallowtails feed on its soft foliage. Need another reason to grow dill? Bouquets seem to twinkle with its green and golden flowers bringing last summer’s fireworks to mind.
Sow seeds directly into a sunny and well-drained area of the garden after your average last frost date. Firm 1/4 inch of soil over seeds and keep moist until germination, in 10 to 14 days. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, thin them to 6 inches apart. Dill prefers poor soil, so feeding is not recommended. Water well, especially in hot weather.
Dill matures in 60 days, and can grow to 4 feet. Its leaves are used fresh or dry. Harvest them by nipping close to the stem. Allow some flowers to mature for their fragrant seeds. Plants self-sow freely.
