Sowing

  • The best season to sow Dill seeds is winter.
  • Dill seeds can be sown directly in containers or on raised beds.
  • Use deep rectangular containers with a minimum depth of 12 inches since dill has really deep tap roots. The width & length can vary.
  • Select a container with uniform drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Fill this container with a medium of your choice.
  • Ideal sowing medium for dill seeds is 2 part garden soil & 1 part any organic manure or 1 part garden soil, 1 part coco peat & 1 part Vermicompost.
  • Make shallow 1 cm holes, at a distance of 7 x 7 inches.
  • Sow 2 - 3 seeds per hole.
  • Push the seeds in these holes with your finger and cover these seeds completely with the surrounding medium.
  • Water the sown seed bed immediately by a light shower using a watering can.
Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium

Caring

  • Dill seeds will germinate within first 6 - 8 days, or sooner.
  • Tiny seedlings will be visible at this point.
  • If more than one seed has germinated per hole, cut off the smaller seedlings & only keep one seedling per hole.
  • Baby Dill plants will be visible in 15 days.
  • Dill requires partial sunlight (3-4 hours) in and it can withstand full sunlight in winters. So place your containers accordingly.
  • Water your Dill plant every day with a watering can to ensure an even shower. If you are growing your dill seeds outdoors, you can water your dill plant with the help of sprinklers.
  • Look for the early signs fungal infection/ insect infestation. If you notice any symptoms, spray appropriate medicines immediately.
  • Add good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio before sowing seeds.
  • Organic fertilizer can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, compost or vermicompost.
  • 50 - 60 days after sowing, mature Dill leaves can be harvested by cutting the leaves using a scissor and leavingthe fleshy base of the plant for the next harvest.
  • In this way you can harvest Dill 4-5 times in the intervals of 25-30 days.
  • To harvest dill seeds, do not cut the leaves off and let the dill plant grow tall. Dill plant eventually starts flowering and producing seeds. These seeds can be harvested from the head bunches.
  • If you want to grow dill microgreens, take a flat container and sow- scatter seeds in a crowded manner. You can harvest it in 10-15 days by uprooting the baby plants.
Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep
