Herb Dill Diana Seeds
HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS
In early spring, sow Dill Diana seed directly into well-drained garden soil 2.5 to 5 cm apart in rows 18cm apart in full sun and cover seeds 1cm deep. Make small sowing every few weeks to have successive harvests of fresh leaves. Sow dill diana seeds thinly in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1cm deep and keep moist as seedlings emerge in 7 to 14 days. Provide a good light source. Space groups of 2 or 3 seedlings about 12 cm apart when seedlings are large enough to handle.
GROWING CARE FOR DILL DIANA
For the best result keep plants well-watered and thinned, crowded seedlings won’t make the lush growth desired for fresh leaf harvests and will form seed heads too early. Plant dill in full sun; dill diana will tolerate light shade but will not grow as bushy. Dill Diana grows best in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Add aged compost to the planting bed in advance of planting. Dill Diana prefers soil of 5.5 to 6.7 pH. Also, Dill seed can be started indoors 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting to the garden. Seedlings from taproots that transplant poorly so dill diana is most easily started and grown in place.
