- Simply sprinkle the seeds directly on top of the soil and cover with a light layer of soil.
- Place the potted plant in an area where it will receive 6-8 hours of sunlight per day.
- Only move the potted plant outdoors once all danger of frost has passed. Until then, keep the plant indoors in front of a south facing window.
- Dill doesn’t require much care.
- Be sure it gets an adequate amount of sun.
- Keep the soil moist by misting often.
- Thin dill to one or two plants per pot once they are a few inches in height.
