How to Plant and Grow Dill

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Dill Seeds: Sow seeds indoors in cell packs or flats, 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 60-65°F., germination is in 14-21 days. Transplant dill seedlings 12 in. apart. Can direct sow dill seed into prepared seed beds ¼ in. deep, in rows spaced 18 in. apart. Thin seedlings to 1 ft. apart.

Grow Dill: Full sun in mild climates, sun or part shade where it is hot. Plants tolerate poor soil. For a steady supply of fresh dill leaves throughout the season, plant in early spring, again in June, and once more in July.
