Number of plants: 3
Variety: Fernleaf (organic*)
Great for protecting your tomatoes, chillies and aubergines!
Can be grown in: Fennel hates having its roots being disturbed or being transplanted, so plant in a permanent spot, either in a container or straight into the ground.
In the kitchen: Treat dill like bay leaves and let it add flavour to soups and stews, or add to the cooking water when you boil potatoes. Dill can also be used in bread, soups, vegetable dishes, and pickles, salad dressings, or to make dill vinegar. It works well with fish dishes.
Plant out: late April to early July. These plants will arrive in biodegradable pots.
