If you’ve ever had a dill pickle, you know this flavor! Dill is a fast-growing annual herb. Although the typical type can reach 3ft or more, the variety ‘Fernleaf’ is a much more compact version. Yellow blooms appear in summer followed by flavorful seeds. These are a butterfly caterpillar magnet. Black Swallowtail butterfly caterpillars love this plant and will appear in summer. Encourage these flying flowers in your garden and plant some dill!
Uses: Delicious to flavor fish or chicken, in soups, dips or of course, pickles. Seeds can be dried for later use.
