Dill is often grown in the vegetable garden for use in pickles. Dill takes 70 days to mature but is usually cut before the seed matures. Sow seed in a sunny location when the ground warms up in the spring. Rows are 3 feet apart with plants thinned to 8 inch spacings. When grown for seed, cut plants one foot from the ground when the lower seeds mature. Gather the plants in dry weather and hang them in a dry place until the seed is separated. Alternatively, spread out the plants in a dry, airy, shaded place to dry.
