How Do You Grow Dill In A Kitchen?

Growing dill indoors might not produce the same large harvest that you could get if you grow it outdoors, but nonetheless it can be great to have in your kitchen. But there are of course a few different things you could do to make sure you maximize the potential harvest. This includes the placement of the dill plant and the conditions you keep the soil in.

The best way of preventing your dill growing really thin and scraggly is by keeping it in the sun as much as possible. Indoors you will want to aim for the plant to get at least 10 hours of sunlight. Any less than this and they might not grow as much as they could. Growing anything indoors will pretty drastically increase the amount of sunlight you will need for it. Outdoors that number goes down to just 6 – 8 hours. This is because the sunlight is a lot stronger obviously outdoors than indoors.

The other important factor you need to think about and manage is the soil. Since we are growing it indoors then you will obviously grow it in a pot. But there are differences between pots and pots. You will want to get one that has small holes in the bottom. This is because we want the excess water to leak out and not pool in the bottom of the soil. Too much water and the roots will start to rot.

This can go pretty quick. One of the best ways we have found to know if it has good drainage besides from it coming out the bottom. You can check how long it takes for the water to sink through the soil. If it stays on the surface for many hours it probably is not a good soil to grow in.
