How to grow:

Since dill does not transplant well, direct sowing is the best method for planting; plant the Mammoth Long Island Dill seeds for sale after the last spring frost in well-drained, fertile soil and full sun. Sow the seeds 1/4″ deep and 8″ apart in rows 18″ apart, thinning to 12-15″ apart when the seedlings develop. Keep the seedlings watered, and apply a layer of mulch to conserve moisture and control weeds. Since mature plants may bolt if the soil dries out, keep the soil consistently moist.
