Harvest plant: When harvesting dill for seeds, cut stalks in mid-summer, when the seeds are ripe. Quickly place in a paper bag to prevent seed loss.
Dry seed heads: Allow seed heads to dry completely in the bag. Then separate stems and other debris from the seeds.
Label and Store: Store in an envelope or container. Properly stored dill seeds can last more than 3 years.
Most recommend growers sow seeds in early spring in warm soil. Transportation is not recommended for dill plants - do not move them from an indoor planting to the garden.
Dill is insect-pollinated and should be separated from other dill varieties by one mile. Alternatively, growers can choose to hand-pollinate, using a paintbrush to pollinate flowers across plants.
