Growing tips

Dill seeds can be collected and used for replanting the following year. To do this, you can collect them when they turn brown. Dill is a dark seedling, its perfect germination temperature is 10°C. To harvest, simply pick off the shoot tips during the harvest period. Dill prefers a wind-protected location, as the leaf stalks snap off easily. It is also sensitive to irregular water supply.
