Dill Growing and Maintenance Tips

Dill is an annual plant and very easy to grow in the garden or in containers. Grown from seed it should be planted where it has room to grow. Pinch flowers off for more leaf production. Leaves should be harvested early in the morning due to the higher moisture content, and are the most flavourful just before flowering. Staking is suggested.
