Dill is an easy to grow annual that enjoys full sun, but will tolerate part shade. Dill plants grow to 1m tall and are susceptible to wind, therefore sow seeds close together for extra support. Once flowers begin to form, leaf production will slow. To harvest dill seeds, wait for seed heads to dry, pick and store upside down in a paper bag. Seeds will become loose in the bag, and can later be stored in a glass jar.
Good companion plants – coriander, fennel, cabbage, broccoli and tomatoes
