Dill, like most herbs, can be grown pretty much anywhere, and can withstand both heat and cool weather. Dill will tolerate partial shade; in light shade the plants won't get as bushy as in full sun, so they can be closer together. It can also be grown in
Description

Feathery foliage on tall and vigorous dill plants that mature and form seed quickly from large umbels of yellow flowers. Sow Mammoth at the back of the herb or vegetable bed, as plants can reach 2m tall or more. Harvest the leaves as needed.

Dill has a very long history of herbal use going back more than 2,000 years. The seeds are a common and very effective household remedy for a wide range of digestive problems. An infusion is especially efficacious in treating gripe in babies and flatulence in young children. The seed is aromatic, carminative, mildly diuretic, galactogogue, stimulant and stomachic.

Harvested from Garden in 2013. Tested for Germination
