Small and compact habit allows us to grow "Bouquet" dill even on a kitchen windowsill. Its intensely green leaves look great in company of other herbs and ornamental plants.
Dill belongs to the most commonly known and cultivated plants. It is used as addition to many dishes, soups, meat and potatoes. Dill inflorescences are added to pickled cucumbers, whom they give their characteristic aroma. Dill greens contain vitamins C, B1, B2, PP, E, K and D, as well as beta-carotene, kalium, calcium, iron and phosphorus. Dill is used in herbal medicine, recommended particularly in digestion problems and painful flatulence.
Dill "Bouquet" is a very early variety that can be grown for green leaves or umbels. It is intended both for pot and field cultivation. It should grow on a sunny site in a moist and fertile soil. You should sow seeds onto the field from March until end of July, or all-year long at home. This variety germinates within 1 - 2 weeks after the sow. It grows equally well alone or together with other vegetables.
Mineral-peat coating of the "Bouquet" dill seeds makes precise single-seed sowing much easier and eliminates the need for later thinning, as well as protects the germinating seeds from harmful pathogens in the soil.
The package contains 300 "Bouquet" dill seeds for pot cultivation, as well as the sow-by date and a growing guide.
