Dill is a hardy annual similar to fennel, grows to 60-70cm, feathery leaves.
Dill is used for flavouring in soups, sauces, added to fish, or pickled with cucumbers. The French use Dill seeds for flavouring cakes and pastries.
Similar to Basil, Dill’s medical usefulness is often associated with the stomach and digestive system. Dill tea – made with water or white wine – is a popular remedy for an upset stomach.
