Organic Dill Seeds (Anethum graveolens)
Grows Best in USDA Zones: 2-9
Dill is native to southern Russia, western Africa and the Mediterranean region. It has been used for its culinary and medicinal properties since ancient times. Dill was mentioned both in the Bible and in ancient Egyptian writings. It was popular in the ancient Greek and Roman cultures, where it was considered a sign of wealth and was revered for its many healing properties.
Dill’s unique health benefits come from its terpenes and flavanoids. Dill’s volatile oils qualify it as a “chemoprotective” food (much like parsley) that can help neutralize particular types of carcinogens, such as the benzopyrenes. It also has antibacterial properties as well as being high in calcium and iron.
Approx. 100 Seeds Included
Sow dill seeds about ¼-inch deep and 18 inches apart. After 10 to 14 days, young dill plants should appear in the soil. Wait another 10 to 14 days, then thin the plants to about 12 to 18 inches apart (if they aren’t already spaced well enough).
Plant dill every couple of weeks until mid summer to ensure a constant supply into fall. Container friendly.
