Organic Bouquet Dill Seeds
Bouquet Dill seed is planted both as a flavorful herb and as a great cut flower! This dill is quick-growing and aromatic! It is the earliest to flower, producing large yellow flower clusters that are beautiful in cut flower arrangements. Its edible flowers, seeds, and greens are great in many recipes and a must for pickling. So many uses for one plant!
Planting by Zones
- Dill is a cool season plant that can be grown from fall until late spring in Zones 9 and 10. Its growing season can be extended by using shade cloth or row cover. Dill will naturally want to flower and go to seed as the days get longer.
- Direct sow in spring after the threat of frost is gone.
Planting Bouquet Dill Seeds
- Dill is most easily direct sown into the garden. Plant seeds in debris-free, well-worked soil that has been pre-irrigated. Cover with 1/4″ of finely sifted soil.
- Once the seedlings have germinated and have a first set of true leaves be sure to fertilize regularly with an organic liquid fertilizer.
- Dill grows well thickly sown; it does not need to be thinned.
Growing Bouquet Dill Seeds
- Keep your plants weed-free by pulling any weeds that may compete with your dill.
Succession Planting Bouquet Dill Seeds
- If you enjoy large amounts of dill, succession planting is a good idea. Start a new round of seeds every 14 days.
Growing Bouquet Dill Seeds in Containers
- Dill is an excellent container crop. Make sure your container is at least 10″ deep. Keep in mind containers will dry out faster because they have more surface area and less soil to hold onto moisture.
Harvesting Bouquet Dill
- The key to happy dill is to use it! Trimming dill back often will slow its desire to flower and go to seed. Harvest by cutting the top 1/4″ of the plant.
- When the flower is ready to flower, let it and watch the butterflies and pollinators go wild! This dill also makes a great cut flower.
