Dill
An annual herb in the celery family. It is native to North Africa, Chad, Iran, and the Arabian Peninsula. It is grown widely in Eurasia, where its leaves and seeds are used as a herb or spice for flavoring food.

Fresh and dried dill leaves are sometimes called "dill weed" to distinguish it from dill seed.

  • Dill grows from 1 1/2 to 5 feet from a taproot like a carrot.
  • Its stems are slender and hollow with finely divided delicate leaves; the leaves are alternately arranged.
  • In hot or dry weather, small white to yellow scented flowers form in small umbels.
  • Successful cultivation requires warm to hot summers with high sunshine levels; even partial shade will reduce the yield substantially.
  • It also prefers rich, well-drained soil.
  • The seeds are viable for three to ten years.
  • The plants quickly die after producing seeds. High temperatures may quicken seed producing.

WikipediaCompanion Planting
When used as a companion plant, dill attracts many beneficial insects as the umbrella flower heads go to seed.It makes a good companion plant for
  • Cucumbers
  • Broccoli
  • Corn
  • Cabbage
  • Lettuce
  • Onions

  • Tomatoes will benefit from dill when they are young since it will repel harmful pests while attracting pollinators, but as dill matures and flowers it will slow or stop the growth of tomatoes. Prune dill regularly so it does not flower if planted next to tomatoes.
  • It can limit the growth of carrots.
