Plant Features

Fernleaf Dill is dwarf variety that produces an abundance of slow bolting leaves that make excellent additions to salads, sauces, with fish, eggs, rice, and lamb dishes. Dill is especially easy to grow, attracts beneficial insects and is a host plant for Swallowtail butterflies. It can be grown indoors next to a south facing window in a very deep pot. Indoor plants should be watered just as the potting mix starts to dry.

Fernleaf Dill Plant Care Instructions: Dill can be harvested throughout the season. It is best to take stems from the top of the plants first. Harvest no more than 1/3 of the plant at a time. Seed heads should not be allowed to develop. Plants can be cut back to the ground after the first frost. Dill does not survive the winter; however, it sometime self-seeds and sprouts will appear in the spring.

Lovely Fernleaf Dill

Very nice quality plant. I love to use this for making homemade pickles. This year however, I have found these little beautiful Caterpillars on the plant. Doing research I found that they are Black Swallowtail Butterflies, and that they are very common on Dill. You can spray for them but if you choose not to at least you will have some of the most beautiful Butterflies alive. I also have chickens and my girls love this Dill for a snack. All around a great plant

Dill-Fernleaf Herb Plant

Dill Plant arrived smaller then I expected, but has grown wonderfully since I transplanted. I am happy with my Dill - cannot wait for my Cucumbers to grow to make pickles!!!

From Robin | May 27, 2013

Had my doubts

I had my doubts as this Dill Fernleaf plant arrived a little broken but once it was out of the packaging, it came back to life. I am very pleased with my entire order

From Arlene | July 19, 2012

Fernleaf Dill is very fragrant

Very fragrant!!! exceptional growth

I Am A Fan

This is the second year I have purchased Herb plants from GrowJoy and it will not be my last. The packaging is meticulous (individual partitions for each plant). The plants were considerably healthier and larger than those I previously purchased online from a large Home Improvement Store. The plants are thriving in containers on my balcony.
