Dill – Bouquet

$3.48

Compact plants grow 75-90 cm (30-36″) tall, and are full of flavour. A great bunching variety that works well in containers or smaller herb gardens. Bouquet has large seed heads and large seeds.  Dill combines the two flavours and smells of parsley and caraway into one herb, and looks great while doing it! The cooling, aromatic foliage and seeds are used in a wide range of dishes, especially those with eggs, potatoes, fish, and pickling cucumbers.
