Dill is such a great herb to serve with fish or new potatoes, as it has a lovely citrusy flavour, with a hint of anise.  It is also a standout companion plant - perfect for attracting bees and deterring pests in the vegetable garden. 

Urban Bounty Dill plants come in a 9.5cm pot.

What is Dill?

Dill is a mid-sized perennial herb with delicate feathery fronds.  It is suitable for a courtyard, a large deep pot but can grow between 60cm and 1.2 metres high in the open garden. It can be mass planted to great effect in an elegant or cottage garden scheme. 

Culinary Uses - Dill

Dill has a tangy, lemony taste with hints of anise.  The whole or crushed seeds can be used in bread or scattered over vegetable dishes.  You can also use them in a vinaigrette or salad dressing, or in a pickle.  The leaves of this herb can be used in soups and stews like bay leaves.  They pair well with potatoes, so try adding them the cooking water when boiling your spuds.

Growing Conditions - Dill

Ideally plant Dill in spring or early summer (after the last frost).  In warmer regions you can also plant it in autumn and winter.   Lettuce, onion, cabbage, sweet corn and cucumbers are good companions for dill, but don't plant tomatoes, fennel and coriander nearby. Dill helps keep cabbage moths under control when planted amongst brassicas.

This easy care seedling loves free-draining sandy loam and full sunlight - part shade. It is fairly hardy once established and will weather a little wind, a frost and drought.  Garden-grown Dill doesn't need much water, but potted Dill needs weekly watering.  Don't feed too much as it will lead to less flavourful Dill! 

      We offer a replacement guarantee

      To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

      If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.)

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


      Where do you deliver to? 

      We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

      South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

      While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote:  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

      We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options:

      Do you deliver to post office boxes?

      Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
