Anethum graveolens 'Fernleaf'

  • 'Fernleaf' Dill is an herb in the One Earth Edibles line.
  • When grown in moderately rich, well-drained, moist soil and full sun, 'Fernleaf' Dill takes care of itself.

This 1992 All American Selections winner solved the problems of common dill by providing a compact habit that avoids the need to stake or protect the plant from wind damage. And Dill Fernleaf is slower to bolt, too. Abundant dark green foliage, Dill Fernleaf is indispensable for pickling and seasoning salmon, eggs, cucumbers sandwiches and many recipes of Scandinavian and Russian cuisines.

Interesting Notes:

Good companion for cabbages, onions, lettuce and peas.
Dill Fernleaf is a compact plant that is good for mixed container gardens.
