Organic Dill Seeds 4060. Heirloom Herb. Approx. 1,000 seeds/pkt (720 seeds/gram)
Organic dill seeds produce a plant that should be a part of any herb garden. Seeds grown from the plant and foliage can be used to flavour foods and are especially important in the flavouring of vinegar and pickles. Dill is regularly used in gardens as a quick-growing attractant for beneficial insects such as lace wings, lady bugs, hover flies and parasitic wasps, as well as a food source for butterflies and other pollinators. This pretty annual herb grows to 90cm (3ft) in height.

Sow seed outdoors in mid-to-late May then every two weeks through to the end of June. Dill is a low-maintenance plant and prolific grower — all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Dill is grown for its leaves and seeds.
