Planting Dill

Post  Monet on 6/27/2012, 5:16 pm

Had someone tell me to be careful planting dill in my sfg as it will take over. Is that true?

If allowed to go to seed, then yes. Same with Basil and cilantro.

I plant dill in my sfg and it grows nicely... Mine usually tops out at 5.5 to 6 ft tall... So beware of the shade factor.

I think dill is such a beautiful thing to grow....

Dill is suppposed to reseed heavily...I had two plants last year (tiger swallowtail butterflies love it)...and so far this year I only see two new seedlings, although they are in an aggressive flower bed, not in the SFG.

Save some of those seed heads - dill seed is delicious! Tastes totally different than the foliage. I have a recipe for zucchini casserole that has dill seeds and it is wonderful!

I do have a few pics but I have a new iPad and haven't figured out how to post pics now. I'll try to post if I ever figure it out! I just pulled up the dill after harvesting all the heads for pickles. Love me some dill!

We're happy to have dill reseed, if it's growing somewhere you don't want it, it's very easy to pull out. I have a little inexpensive food dehydrator and herbs dried at home taste light years better than those you find in the supermarket.
