Dill ‘Compatto’ Miniature Dill - x10-20 Seeds

This variety is a perfect miniature Dill, great for pots or small herb gardens.  A hardy annual with dark green aromatic foliage that can be used fresh to flavour soup, lamb, fish and eggs.

Dill is an easy herb to grow. In warm winter areas that don’t experience a hard frost, you can plant dill in autumn or winter. In cooler areas, plant dill a week or two before your last hard frost. After the first sowing, plant again every 10 days or so for a continuous crop.

When growing in containers, use a deep container to accommodate the long roots, and remember that you will eventually have a plant that is three feet tall. Plants grown in containers may require staking.

Cultivation

Here are a few suggestions to start you on your way to a healthy crop of dill:

  • Dill, like most herbs, loves to bask in the sun, but will tolerate afternoon shade.
  • Sow seeds close together. This will allow the plants, which blow over easily to support each other.
  • Cover the seeds lightly, and allow a week or two for them to germinate.
  • For a continuous crop, sow repeatedly from mid spring to early summer.
  • Don’t plant near caraway, fennel or angelica.
  • Caterpillars are fond of dill, and can be handpicked if they become a nuisance.
