Growing dill

Growing dillAmong the cold-resistant plants, dill can be classified. He tolerates small frosts and low temperatures quite well. Already at 3? From the seeds go into growth. However, with this temperature regime, the germination lasts a long time. The high content of essential oils in seeds is the main reason for the long germination of seeds.

For seedlings to appear faster, pre-sowing treatment should be carried out. 15-20? C - such a temperature for plant growth is optimal. When growing this plant, it should be remembered that this culture is thermophilic.

Growing dill is possible on any soil, where it feels good. But if you want to get a big crop of this crop, then it should be grown on light soils with a neutral reaction, which are fertilized with a lot of organic matter. Reparted manure or compost in the ridges make in the fall. Along with them they also make complex mineral fertilizing. Seeds before planting are soaked for their rapid germination. The duration of soaking is 3 days, use warm water or a special fertilizer solution. The fluid must be replaced every 8-10 hours. This should be done to remove the essential oils that dissolve in it.

The seeds are planted every two weeks, beginning in April and until the end of August. Addition of a mineral mixture of young shoots will speed up their growth. Sprouting should be done regularly, but at least 2 once a week. Note that watering should be abundant enough. Loosen the substrate immediately after the arrival of moisture. The yield of dill decreases with the drying of the soil, the transition of plants to the formation of the stalk occurs faster.

After 30-40 days after sowing, they begin harvesting the greens. Young plants height about 5 cm begin to eat first. Cleaning can be carried out selectively, with it the largest plants are pulled out. Also, cleaning can be continuous, when everything is pulled out.

If you are late with cleaning plants and they reached a height of 15-20 cm, it is desirable to remove all plants, and then to do their processing. Otherwise, inflorescences will quickly form, loss of taste will occur. On the bed, you can leave a small number of plants from the spring sowing. For pickling vegetables and canning, you can use inflorescences. Or they can be used to harvest seeds.

At the end of harvesting, the dill can be sown in the same area. With full observance of agrotechnics, the cultivation of dill for greenery in one season can be done up to 3-s crops.
