Herb: Dill Mammoth Planting Instructions:
Mammoth Dill grows best in full sun. Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep and 18 to 24" apart. Make small sowings a few weeks apart until midsummer so that you get a harvest that lasts all season. Mammoth Dill will self-seed if you allow a few plants to grow to maturity and drop their seeds. Leave the area undisturbed and more seedlings will emerge the following season.

Herb: Dill Mammoth Harvesting Instructions:

Mammoth Dill's fern-like leaves will be ready for harvest about 8 weeks after planting. To harvest, pinch off the outer leaves close to the stem. The leaves will be most flavorful when the flower heads are just starting to open. To dry Mammoth Dill leaves, spread them on a screen in a cool, dark place. If you want to freeze the leaves after drying, place them in plastic bags with the air pressed out. Freezing the leaves will maintain their flavor better.
