Weekend Herb Blogging #6


Volunteer Dill Coming Up Among The Escarole (Yippee!)

Dill is a versatile herb that is easy to grow and a vigorous self-seeder. Plant it once, and you may never have to sow seeds again. It is a wonderful addition to any kitchen garden.

So what did I make with my surprise bounty of dill? Click
here to find out. And don't forget the Weekend Herb Blogging roundup on Sunday night at Kalyn's Kitchen.

  1. Oh so you say "vigorous self-seeder"? NOT. Every year I try to grow seedlings (which die), and end up getting a six pack of dill plants which I manage to use up in a month. Dill is lovely.

  2. Hi Kat,
    Well that is very sad. I wonder why your seedlings die. And I am assuming you use up your purchased dill plants so quickly that they don't have a chance to go to seed? You definitely need seeds to self-seed the next year. : )

  3. Ha, it's called Dill Weed for a reason! The first year we grew dill from seed and barely managed to keep one seedling alive - yes, it can be fragile. It grew to only about one spindly foot (not even enough to harvest), but did go to seed. Two years later, we can't get rid of the stuff. It grows thick as grass in our garden!
