    • Choose a sunny location: Mammoth dill prefers full sun, so choose a location in your garden or container that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight per day.

    • Sow the seeds: Sow the mammoth dill seeds directly into the soil, about ¼ inch deep and 18-24 inches apart. You can also start the seeds indoors about 4-6 weeks before the last frost date and transplant them outside after the danger of frost has passed.

    • Water regularly: Keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Dill prefers consistent moisture, so water regularly to prevent the soil from drying out.

    • Fertilize: You can fertilize mammoth dill with a balanced fertilizer once or twice during the growing season to promote healthy growth and a bountiful harvest.

    • Harvest: You can start harvesting the leaves when the plant is about 6-8 inches tall. Use scissors to snip off the leaves as needed, being careful not to damage the stem or flowers. You can also harvest the seeds when they turn brown and dry on the plant.
