Cultivation advice

Sowing

Sow thinly about 1cm deep directly in the plot as soon as it is ready, a little later for dill heads in southern Sweden. Dill can also be sown in the autumn (the seed must not sprout) for an extra early harvest the next year.

Spacing

Keep 30- 40 cm for leaf dill and 40-50 cm for dill heads, which should also be a few cm away from its closest neighbours in the row. Leaf-dill can also be sown by scattering the seeds over a seed-bed.

Harvest

Pick the leaves gradually during summer and autumn. If the whole plant is cut down, it grows back again. The leaves can be dried or frozen for winter really well, but should be harvested before the plant flowers. Dill heads for pickles and preserves should be cut off just before the flowering ends.

Seed

 600-700 seeds/g and one portion  sows  5-7 m leaf-dill or about 15 m for dill heads. About 70 g sows 100 m and 25 g for crowns of dill. A portion contains about 500 seeds.
