Not inly is this an edible flower, its seeds are also delicious in all sorts of dishes. Dill, chervil and fennel are all in the same family (Apiaceae). Its umbrelliferous flowers give every bouquet a sprightly touch. This annual summer flower is a great addition to your flower garden.

Annual flower seeds
All our flower seeds produce flowers that are suitable for use as cut flowers. They are also used by professional nurseries and floriculture companies. For flower seeds to be considered high-quality, they need to have outstanding germination capacity and energy and therefore yield a high percentage of flowering plants. All seeds are annuals, which means that they have a lot of growing power: they go through all the stages – from a seed to a flowering plant that, in turn, produces new seeds – in the space of just one season. Most flowers bloom for about three to five months. A rule of thumb in this is that the more flowers you pick, the faster they will grow back! All our seeds are untreated and uncoated, and are also suitable as starting material for growing organic flowers.
- Plant in moist soil to which the seeds stick for best germination.
- Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil of approx. 0.5 cm.
- Grow in fertile, well-drained soil.
- Give them a sunny spot and sufficient protection from strong winds. Support if necessary.
- Water regularly.
Dill is easy to grow, but needs to be planted in the full sun: planting dill in a semi-shaded area will considerably reduce its yield. Because it does not like to be transplanted, it should preferably be sown directly where you want it to flower.
