Live Dill Grown Year Round in Calgary,AB

Fresh Dill Close Up

Sweet and grassy, with a sharp, tangy taste and vibrant aroma, fresh dill is a perfect way to perk up seafood, sauces, potatoes, and pickles. Dill is an extremely delicate herb. The more delicate an herb is, the closer to cooking time you need to prepare it. Dill should be prepared right before it is added to the dish to preserve its flavor and appearance.

Dill is not one of those herbs where you have to separate one part of the plant and discard another. Simply chop the fronds along with the stems and add them to the dish you are preparing. If the flowers are present on the plant, those are edible too. Use them as a garnish for salads or toss them into your pickle brine.

Harvesting Your Live Dill Plant

Cutting Dill

Step 1: When trimming dill be sure to use a sharp pair of scissors to make sure that you don’t damage the plant. You can start to cut your dill once the plant is 4″-5″ tall. Only harvest 40% of the plant if you want vigorous regrowth for many months to come. 

Step 2: Cut any long spindly sprigs on the outside of the plant to maintain tidy, uniform growth.  To help the plant grow into a bush, find a stem and located where two side shoots are growing off the main stem.  Cut the stem roughly 1/4″ above the side leaves. 

Step 3:  Remove the cut sprigs (remember to use them right away) and put the plant in direct sunlight.  In a few weeks time the plant will be ready to cut again but this time with twice as many heads to choose from.
