Dill is a versatile herb that originates from Eastern Europe. It has a fresh flavour synonymous with fish dishes but also wonderful in salads. 

The fine frilly leaves, delicate flowers and seeds are all edible.

Sowing: Indoors in pots all year round in sunny warm position. Outdoors from late April/May to August. Many other plants don’t like Dill so plant on its own somewhere.

Soil requirements: Light, well-drained soil.                   Spacing: 12”-20” 

Harvest: Keep cutting as needed. For a plentiful supply plant successionally every 3-5 weeks.

  • Each seed packet is hand painted. Inside is a planting guide on recommended months to sow the seeds, transplant them out and then when they should be ready to harvest. I have added the wildlife benefits for growing sunflowers. The artwork can be cut out and sent as a postcard.
