Dill Bouquet - approx 200 seeds
Dill 'Bouquet is an exquisite dwarf form of this charming, architectural herb. The delicate, ferny foliage is highly attractive and surprisingly compact, making it ideal for container growing. Excellent in the herb garden and ideal for windowsill growing. Dill 'Bouquet' is easy to grow and tolerant of most conditions, requiring little maintenance. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (8").
Direct sow dill seeds outdoors from March to July into well prepared soil in full sun. Sow seeds thinly into drills 1cm (0.5") deep and 15cm (6") apart. Thin seedlings to 30cm (12") apart. Make regular sowings for a successional harvest.
Although dill is deep rooted and can survive in dry soils it is preferable to keep dill plants well watered as dill can quickly run to flower if grown in dry conditions. Dill leaves can be harvested 6-8 weeks after sowing. When growing dill for a crop of seeds, sow in spring to give the plants time to develop.
