An All-America Selections winner, Bonnie Plants Dill is known as the “fish herb” because is so complements fish, but also used in dips, soups, vinegars, & salads.

Fernleaf is an improved, more compact variety of ordinary dill which continues to be a favorite for its garden performance and high production of foliage.  Slower to set seed than ordinary dill varieties, you can harvest foliage longer. As the flowers appear, harvest the dill seed for making dill pickles or other dishes calling for dill seed. Dill leaves or seeds are used in the cooking of many cultures around the world.

In addition to providing aromatic seeds and foliage, dill will brighten your garden with its yellow-green flowers in spring and fall. While typical dill grows to a height of 2 to 4 feet, Fernleaf dill is more compact, growing only 18 to 24 inches tall. It is a warm-season annual, but really loves mild weather–not too hot, not too cold. With its slender stem and delicate leaves, it makes a good mid- to back-of-the-border addition to your garden.

Quick Guide to Growing Dill

  • Plant dill during the mild weather of spring and fall. Dill is an excellent option for growing in raised garden beds, containers, and in-ground gardens.
  • Space dill plants 12 to 15 inches apart in an area with abundant sunlight and fertile, well-drained soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5.
  • Before planting, mix in several inches of aged compost or other rich organic matter into your native soil.
  • Check soil moisture often and water when the top inch becomes dry.
  • Promote fantastic leaf growth by regularly feeding with water-soluble plant food.
  • Harvest dill at any time once leaves are large enough for use.

Uses

Dill seed is a pungent ingredient found in salad dressings, pickles, sauerkraut, and even breads. Enjoy the leaves at their peak when they are fresh, finely chopping for best flavour. Dill can be also a handy salt substitute for people on low-sodium diets.You can dry the leaves, but add them to dishes in greater quantity, as they are less flavourful than fresh leaves. Dill leaves may also be preserved in oil, butter, or vinegar for pickles, or frozen in water or stock.
