  • Botanical name and family: Anethum graveolens (Apiaceae—parsley family)
  • Southeast Asia
  • Type of plant: Dill is a biennial herb often grown as an annual.
  • Growing season: Spring through fall
  • Hardiness: Dill tolerates cold and heat.
  • Plant form and size: Dill is a bushy plant with feathery foliage that grows 2 to 4 feet tall and half as wide; each plant grows a single hollow stem with umbrella-shaped flower heads.
  • Flowers: Dill has small greenish-yellow flowers bloom on flat-topped clusters or umbels about 6 inches across; seeds ripen in early autumn.
  • Bloom time: Mid-summer to autumn
  • Leaves: Finely-cut, feathery blue-green leaves similar to fennel but shorter and smaller atop hollow stems with green and white stripes.
  • Seeds: Dill seeds are flat, oval, and light-brown; seeds follow the blossoms.
  • Best location: Plant dill in full sun; dill will tolerate light shade but will not grow as bushy.
  • Soil preparation: Dill grows best in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Add aged compost to the planting bed in advance of planting. Dill prefers a soil pH of 5.5 to 6.7.
  • Seed starting indoors: Dill seed can be started indoors 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting to the garden. Seedlings form taproots that transplant poorly so dill is most easily started and grown in place.
  • Transplanting to the garden: Set out seedlings after the last frost in spring. Dill forms a taproot and is not easily transplanted.
  • Watering: Water dill evenly and regularly until established. Once established dill will grow best if the soil is allowed to nearly dry between waterings.
  • Feeding: Prepare planting beds with aged compost. Side dress dill two or three times during the growing season with compost tea.
  • Care: Keep the planting bed well weeded; weeds compete for nutrients and water
  • Dill can grow tall and wispy; it may benefit from staking in gardens with a prevailing wind. Keep planting beds weed-free; weeds compete for moisture and nutrients. Pinch out early flowers for prolonged leaf growth.
  • Container growing: Dill will grow easily in a container. Choose a container at least 12 inches deep as dill forms a taproot.
  • Winter growing: Dill can be grown indoors in winter. Outdoors dill will likely die back to the ground after the first hard freeze.
