Growing Calendar for Dill x 3
Delivery: Late May to Early June
With a strong aniseed flavour and lovely ferny foliage dill is a very attractive herb suitable for growing in the border or in pots. It mixes well with many other plants.
Dill produces yellow flowers in flat umbels in summer which are loved by bees.
Both seeds and leaves are used as flavouring for lamb, fish and sauces. Dill is also very attractive as a garnish.
The website indicated they would arrive within 4-10 days of ordering. In fact, they didn't arrive until more than 20 days later - the day before I was going away for a week. I didn't have time to plant them and had to hand them to a friend in the hope she would look after them for me. The basil and parsley arrived (looking at my account) while we were away too, so they will most likely be dead when we get back. Marshalls should be clearer about delivery times.
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
