Choosing and Preparing a Planting Site
Plant in full sun.
Choose a site that has well-draining soil that’s rich in organic matter. The pH of the soil should be between slightly acidic and neutral.
In your garden, plant dill next to cabbage or onions, but keep it away from carrots. Learn more about companion planting.
Make sure to shelter dill from strong winds.
How to Grow Dill
Water the plants freely during the growing season.
In order to ensure a season-long fresh supply of dill, continue sowing seeds every few weeks. For an extended harvest, do not allow flowers to grow on the plants.
If the dill was allowed to go to seed last year and the soil hasn’t been disturbed too much, more dill plants will grow the next season.
How to Harvest Dill
As soon as the plant has four to five leaves, you can start harvesting. Pinch off the leaves or cut them off with scissors.
If you have a lot of plants, you can pinch off entire stalks.
