Bouquet Dill Plants

Anethum graveolens

This annual culinary herb, is one of our favorites for dips and seasoning salmon!

The edible seeds and greens of Dill 'Bouquet' are great for flavoring salads, eggs, meats and vegetables. It is essential for preserving the summer garden bounty in pickles! Spicier than your dried out grocery store version, fresh Dill is very aromatic and tastes much like a cross between Parsley and Carraway. Light and flavorful, add some dill to your next summer dish to add tons of taste!

Bouquet is the most widely grown variety for its high seed and leaf yields. It is great for the garden as it attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, as well as garden-friendly insects that prey on aphids. Dill loves sunshine and grows quickly so continue to trim it and enjoy it in the kitchen regularly.

Dill is a great medicinal herb as well, for its germicidal, antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic properties. Dill seeds are often eaten after dinner, because they freshen the breath and aid in digestion, as they have carminative properties that reduce gas and bloating. Dill is also a rich source of Calcium, natural antioxidants and Vitamin B-Complex. In India, it is also tradition to give Dill seeds to new mothers after childbirth because of the plant's antispasmodic potential, found in the herb's essential oils.
