Dill is one of my favourite herbs to grow with its spectacular feathery leaves on a tall plant, followed by the production of yellow flowers that resemble an exploding firework. The young leaves are delicious as a flavour in a yoghurt dip, pickling, or when cooking fish.

Dill is easy to germinate in the spring. The plants grow quite tall at over a metre in height and will benefit from tying to a cane. After flowering, the plants will produce seed that can be stored and used as flavouring for food.
