Sowing and Growing
Sow dill seeds once the soil is able to be worked. Reseed every 2 weeks into midsummer for a continuous supply. Like many herbs, dill can withstand the heat. Germination takes 7 to 21 days and will continue to grow for 4 to 6 weeks. You can plant dill next to cabbage, but keep well away from fennel. You won’t need to water dill too much, unless it’s potted, then give it 6 to 8 hours of sun each day and water consistently.
You can begin harvesting 60 days from the sow date or as soon as the plant has produced several leaves. Depending on the end-use of this herb, keep some plants pruned to delay flowering and let others produce flowers.
