We grow dill both indoors and outdoors year round. The dill we have indoors is to use whenever we need fresh dill and the dill outdoors is for drying.
Sun – Dill needs 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight daily.
Soil – Plant in well draining soil that is also able to stay moist and is rich with organic matter.
Spacing – They need to be planted 6in/5cm apart in order to grow properly.
Water – 1in/2cm of water a week is what dill needs. If the climate is hot it will more water and if the climate is cool then it will need less water.
Food – After dill is planted in well fertilized soil it does not need to be fertilized.
Annual or Perennial – Dill plants have a life span of 2 years but it is not a perennial, it is also not an annual, it is actually a biennial. Dill has a two year life cycle and after the 2 years it seeds itself and those seeds turn into more plants.
Climate/Hardiness – They are not very cold hardy but an established plant can survive 25°F/-3.88°C. This temperature is not recommended full term as they optimal temperature for dill is 70°F/21°C and above.
Harvest – You can harvest dill 4 to 8 weeks after planting it.
Transplant – Dill does not like being transplanted. For this reason you should try to plant it where it is going to grow and thin the seedlings as needed.
