Dill 'Superdukat' / Herb bred for flavour / Seeds

Dill is a tasty and versatile herb.  The ‘Superdukat’ variety is specially bred for flavour and for a compact shape.  Plants high yielding, slow to bolt and easy to grow.  Plants reach a height of 50-60cm and are suitable for the garden and containers. The leaves and seeds are used to flavour salads, savoury dishes and condiments.  They have very attractive flowerheads and are great ornamental plants.


Dill ‘Superdukat’ grows best in a sunny place in light soil. Leaves can be harvested from about 60-80 days and trimmed at regular intervals.  Sow every few weeks for a continuous supply.  Stop cutting once the flowers grow and let them set seed, as the seeds are used ground or whole for flavouring.

 

Pack of approx 500 seeds.  Sow outdoors directly into the soil from March to July.  Seeds can be started in small pots and transplanted later.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the seed packet.

Sow

For indoor cultivation: Sow in spring on the surface of small pots of moist seed compost.  Cover very lightly with compost or vermiculite, and keep at room temperature.  Germination takes 2-3 weeks.   Water sparingly and give the plants good light.  Protect the roots on transplanting as they do not like disturbance.  For outdoor cultivation: Sow late March to July directly in the soil 5mm deep in rows 15cm apart, and thin to 20-30cm apart.  Sow in a sunny place with well-drained soil. Sow regularly for a continuous supply of leaves.

Grow & Harvest

Water plants during dry spells.  Harvest leaves regularly, not taking too much from the plant at one time, as more leaves will grow.  Excess leaves can be frozen.  Stop trimming leaves once the flowers form and harvest the seeds once they have dried. Naturally dried seeds are ground or used whole, and are good for sprouting.  Discard plants once seeds are harvested and sow again in spring.  Plants are likely to self-seed.
