Dill has fennel like qualities and is an herb in the parsley family. With tiny yellow flowers, thin, feathery yellow-green leaves, this is a gardener favorite for sure.
This bouquet variety flowers a bit earlier than its sister hera variety and will produce large yellow blooms and foliage on long stems. This is a great option for cut flowers to add to your bouquet; smells delicious and tastes delicious too. We haven’t tried adding this to a bouquet before, but now I think we will!

Plant size: 24”-36” tall

Sun, soil, and water requirement: Dill enjoys full sun, and partial shade in the warmer seasons with rich, light, well-draining soil. Can tolerate moist soil but try not to keep to feet wet.
Harvesting: The foliage can be harvested as soon as your plant is established and up until it begins to flower.
Culinary: Used as a spice in culinary dishes, and popular addition to pickling. Its leaves and seeds can both be used as a seasoning.
Nutrients: Dill will give you a nice boost of vitamin C, and is a good source of fiber, calcium for healthy bones, manganese, iron, a source of protein, and more.
Companion planting: Plant near broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, lettuce, onions, asparagus, corn, cucumber, and beans. Keep away from carrots, tomatoes, fennel, lavender, and caraway. It’ll improve the flavor and growth of cabbage family plants.
