Dill is an aromatic fine leaved herb used extensively in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. Dill requires a warm, sunny position sheltered from wind, as it grows to be 60cm to 150cm tall, and may need to be staked. Dill thrives when kept moist, as it dislikes being dry. Dill makes an architectural plant in the border, producing a single upright hollow stem, it also produce umbels of tiny yellow flowers which appear in the summer, these become seed heads in time.
An excellent accompaniment to fish and potatoes, with fine frond like leaves, Dill can be a majestic addition to a herb garden. Dill seeds are also important culinary additions, as the flavour is more pungent then the leaf, which provides a more subdued flavour to a dish. Dill seed is used in pickling, particularly cucumbers, gherkins and cauliflower, and features in vinaigrettes and marinades.
