Bouquet dill seeds grow into compact plants around 75-90cm (30-36") tall. Bouquet Dill is a particularly good variety to grow for nice looking bunching at the market table, and works well in containers or smaller herb gardens. This dill has fragrant, lacy foliage, large yellow flower heads, and large seeds, but the plants only grow about waist high.
The structure of dill's flowers is known as an umbel. Thus dill is considered an umbelliferous plant. Other umbellifers include carrots, cilantro, fennel, parsnips, and Ammi. All of these plants are attractive to predatory insects such as lady beetles, Syrphid flies (hover-flies), lacewings, and tiny parasitoid wasps. Organic gardeners like to grow dill precisely to attract these beneficial insects, for they will control pest insects like aphids, thrips, whitefly, and the caterpillar of the Small White Butterfly (cabbage moth).
A staple of the herb garden. Dusty, green leaves are used n dressing, sauces, salted herbs, sausage and tea. Plant in partial sun/shade. Perennial herb. Will grow in most soils with good drainage and a fair amount of nitrogen. Good drainage is essential for overwintering.
