Dill is a highly ornamental aromatic herb with fine, feathery foliage that procudes small yellow flowers  that grow in umbrella shaped culusters.  The leaves have a wonderful fresh flavour, some what a blend between aniseed and parsley.  It has a slightly sweet aroma.  Good for growing in garden beds and pots.  Slow to bolt.  Widely used in seafood, poultry and egg dishes. Dill is a popular herb in various cuisines around the world, particularly in Scandinavian, Eastern European, and Mediterranean cooking. It is commonly used to flavor dishes like pickles, salads, fish, and soups. Dill complements the flavours of salmon and cucumber exceptionally well and is a key ingredient in dishes like dill pickles, tzatziki sauce, and gravlax.  Both seeds and leaves are edible.

Fantastic plant to have in the garden.

Dill - Anethum graveolens

  • Dill is a hardy herb that is relatively easy to grow in your garden or in pots. It prefers well-drained soil and full sun. Dill can be grown from seeds and is a self-seeding plant, meaning it will often return in the same spot the following year if allowed to go to seed.

    It can be sowed from early spring through to early autumn.  It takes 7-21 days for germination and grows to approximately 25cm.
