- Mammoth Dill
Mammoth Dill - 8,000’ - Annual
This dill has deep green leaves with very large seed heads, perfect for making pickles! It is a bit earlier than the average dill and it can grow to 36". I've seen it grow even taller.
Sow seeds no more than 1/4" deep and thin to 8" apart. Dill does not transplant well so direct seed where you want it. If you let some reseed, you will always have dill.
After they germinate, mulch to keep the soil evenly moist. If the soil dries out, it will trigger it to go to seed. Both the leaves and the seeds are edible and delicious.
A staple in the kitchen garden. Pollinators love this plant. Medicinal.
