Sow seeds directly into a sunny and well-drained area of the garden after your average last frost date. Firm 1/4 inch of soil over seeds and keep moist until germination, in 10 to 14 days. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, thin them to 6 inches apart. Dill prefers poor soil, so feeding is not recommended. Water well, especially in hot weather.

Dill matures in 60 days, and can grow to 4 feet. Its leaves are used fresh or dry. Harvest them by nipping close to the stem. Allow some flowers to mature for their fragrant seeds. Plants self-sow freely.
