Likewise, is Dill easy to grow?
Dill is an annual, self-seeding plant with feathery green leaves. It is used most commonly in soups and stews or for pickling. Dill weed is easy to grow—here's how! If you're planting dill for pickling, plant every few weeks into midsummer to ensure a constant supply for when the harvest begins!
One may also ask, does Dill grow year round? Dill is a biennial warm-season herb, very sensitive to light-freezes and frost. Dill is not technically a perennial plant, because a single plant only lives 2 years. It is quite proficient at self seeding (if allowed). If let grow naturally, A single dill plant should come back year after year.
Keeping this in consideration, how often should you water dill?
You don't have to water garden dill very much, but potted dill will need more attention than that. Water it at least once a week and give it a light feeding of fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season.
Do dill plants spread?
Sow seeds directly into the soil, placing them ¼ inch deep and about 1 to inches apart in rows 6 inches apart. Depending on the variety, dill grows 1 to 3 feet tall, so thin (remove by pulling or cutting) the seedlings so they are 12 to 24 inches apart. Most herbs, including dill, don't need additional fertilizer.
