As you know, fresh herbs are a great way to add extra flavor, color and aroma to your cooking. But one huge downside is that fresh herbs don’t last very long. If you are only cooking a few times a week, then chances are most of your herbs are probably going to go bad...
The best of both worlds, Fernleaf Dill offers a compact option for indoor growing and providing months of the fresh herb for your favorite sandwiches, soups and fish dishes. Blooming in the spring and fall, Fernleaf Dill is as aesthetically pleasing as it is delicious. It is slow to bolt and great for growing in small spaces.

In Central and Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, Baltic States, Ukraine and Russia as a topping for soups, hot and cold borscht. In other countries, dill is used for drinks such as in a cold fermented milk drink. In Egypt, dill is used to flavor cabbage in a dish called Mahshi Kromb. The word dill comes from the Norwegian word “dilla”, meaning to soothe, based on the medicinal properties of the plant. The plant has been used medicinally since the Middle Ages, often to treat digestive problems and diseases.
