Long Island Mammoth dill is a must-have for pickles, dressing, bread, and more.
Suggested Planting Requirements: A full sun annual that grows well in fertile soil with good drainage. In Southern California and areas with mild winters dill can be planted all cool season-long. Grows the happiest in the cool wet weather of early spring. In warmer climates, growers can add lots of compost to the soil and mulch heavily to help get the roots cool. Use shade cloth during the warmer parts of late spring to extend the season.
Growing Recommendations: Direct sow or transplant dill. Weed competition can inhibit growth and production. For best results keep beds well weeded and give a monthly feeding of compost tea or other organic feedings.
Harvesting & Storage: Dill flavor varies depending on when it is harvested. For fresh dill, harvest when the plant is green and mature. For pickles or other cooking methods, harvest just prior to the opening of flowers. If your dill plant begins to flower, just let it! It’s a favorite of many beneficial insects and butterflies. The flowers are very attractive and look beautiful in pickle jars. Dill seeds can also be used in the kitchen. Here is the recipe for our favorite dill dip!
