Care & Harvest

✂️ Pruning: Remove leaves with brown spots if they appear. Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod

 

🔎 Plant Health: Aphids are a common pest, but you can use our prevention and treatment tricks to keep pests at bay! 

 

🌿 Harvest: Harvesting frequently helps prolong the plant’s life. Once mature, prune the top third of the plant every 2 months, and take smaller fronds as needed. Remove flowers when they appear by pinching them to keep the plant focused on vegetative growth. To encourage bushier growth, harvest leaves from the top down. 

Quick Facts

Native to the eastern Mediterranean region and western Asia, Dill dates back as far as 3000 BC in Egyptian texts. The word comes from the Norse word dylia meaning to soothe or lull.

Dill is high in vitamin A which, supports the immune system, good vision, and children’s development. Dill contains many other micronutrients that help in the maintenance of our cells.

Dill has a very delicate flavor and can be a fragile plant, so use it as soon as possible upon harvest. It goes especially well with zucchini, summer squash, yoghurt sauces, and fish such as herring and salmon. Dill is also an essential ingredient when pickling!
