Dill Flowers Production & Farming in Texas

Dill has always been loved by culinary enthusiasts because of its distinct flavor. They can be grown as an herb or a flower depending on the person’s taste. Many growers prefer to buy the seeds and plant them directly in their garden plot but dill can be started from seed indoors as well. Dill benefits from cool temperatures, which means that it is best to start planting in the spring. Luckily for those who want to plant dill, it does not require much space to grow.


Preservatives and Chemicals

Fresh dill does not need any preservatives and chemicals because it can stand alone as a very fragrant and flavorful herb. When buying preserved dill commercially produced and packaged in glass jars, be wary of the preservatives added. Like all other herbs, dill is rich and concentrated in vitamins and antioxidants. However, adding chemicals to it will defeat its restorative purpose.



Fresh dill flowers can be harvested and immediately consumed, but they can also be sun-dried for a couple of days and can last up to a year if stored properly.

Enjoying Dill Flowers

Dill is one of the most uniquely versatile herbs. Its feathery fronds impart an anise-like flavor to every food it touches. Dill pairs well with hot and cold potato dishes. It’s also a great complementary flavor to grains such as quinoa, bulgur, wheat berries, couscous, and barley. One of the most famous grain recipes with dill is the Rainbow Quinoa Tabbouleh.


No seafood dish would be complete without the fragrant addition of dill. Tuna, salmon, and shrimp, are perfect when complemented with lemon, balsamic vinegar, and even mayonnaise.


Let’s not forget the wonderfully creamy, buttery, silky, and herby dressings we can make will dill. How about a classic Horseradish Dip Mayo or a Vegan Yogurt Tzatziki Sauce to be paired with freshly cooked gyros?
