Fernleaf Dill

Anethum graveolens

This All America Winner for 1992 was bred by the W. Atlee Burpee Company. The objective was to diminish the plant size so that the dill could be grown in containers and the smallest of gardens. In addition to pickles, this variety will make a welcome addition to salads and it is a lovely ornamental plant with its yellow flowers, deep green foliage, and compact growth habit.

    Good for containers

    I planned to grow this dill in containers, and had a pot of them growing on my kitchen window sill by late winter. They were just the right size for a pot, healthy and pretty until they reached a size I would harvest to garnish food; Then the aphids arrived and ruined them. Not sure how to get rid of the aphids and still have edible dill, I discarded them. I plan to grow them in an outdoor container next spring. Insects never bother my outdoor dill, and they should be very attractive filler plants in container gardens.
