Flowering

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Dill bears umbels of yellow flowers through Summer. Cut off the flower-heads if you do not want the plant to make seed.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Dill does not like to be moved, so planting is not a viable option. Seeds need to be sown in situ

 

Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Sow seed in a free-draining, sunny site, where you want the plant to grow - they do not transplant well.
