Ratings & Reviews
Growing this dill for use in pickling and started them under grow lights here in zone 5/6. Despite seed warning on erratic germination, had no problem with the seeds. I already have four different plants out of the five seeds I planted. Looking forward to using these once I have my cucumbers producing.
Here's a tip- do at least two plantings of this one to make sure the dill lines up with the entire cucumber pickling season. I always have good germination on these seeds. Volunteers will come up all over your garden after you have the seeds around.
