4008-CO Anethum graveolens
(Annual. 45-60 days.)
Like coriander, dill is used both for its leaves and seed. Its feathery leaves are full of aroma and flavour, and this herb is a great attractor of parasitic wasps (the good guys!) if left to flower.
Dill does best in the ground (it tends to get a little spindly in containers). Plant directly outdoors after soil temperature has warmed up. Lightly cover with a sprinkle of soil. Snip off young leaves and use fresh. Allow the plants to form seed heads for dill pickles.
