Well, keep reading and you shall find out.

You can sow dill virtually any time during the season

Dill is usually sown in April when the weather is a bit warmer but you can sow it even now and you will have not any problems, but you have to water more frequently. But do not overdo it! Too wet soil is not good because your seeds may rot and of course you do not want that. All you need is a regular garden soil. The optimal place for growing dill is a sunny place and if you find a place protected from wind then even better. Dill can be grown together with any other plants, just watch out for fennel, which tends to reduce the original dill aroma. Also watch out for aphids which love to attack dill.
