I have tried to grow dill in the past remembering how it used to come up in my Moms and Grandmothers garden. They used to let it self sow and used it to make cucumber pickles. However, during the past three years, I could not make it grow. As soon as it got hot my dill disappeared. This dill has strong stems, and big seed heads. It germinated well, and I am very happy with it. I definitely will plant it again next year.
