SSPDaily prepared tips for growing aromatic dill and parsley, which are added to a wide variety of dishes. It's enough to choose favorable days for planting and follow certain rules.

When to sow dill and parsley outdoors

The period for sowing herbs in open ground is determined by several factors: the region where the herbs are planted, climatic conditions, weather patterns, and favorable days on the lunar calendar.

The region and weather primarily determine the temperature, so you should base your decision on when to plant dill or parsley on temperature conditions. Dill and parsley are cold-resistant crops, so you can sow them outdoors before other crops at temperatures of +3°C. The crops will emerge when the air temperature warms up to +3...+4°C. Additionally, the plants can withstand short-term temperature drops to -5...-6°C without perishing.

Basic rules for planting dill and parsley

When sowing parsley and herbs, choose the sunniest possible areas, as these herbs require ample sunlight. Optimal locations are open areas of land that receive sunlight throughout the day without shade.

Dill and parsley also prefer moderate water levels, so avoid planting them in areas with high groundwater levels. These are regions where water tends to pool on the surface for extended periods after rainfall, causing the soil to become soggy.

It's essential to practice crop rotation. Avoid sowing dill or parsley in locations where celery, carrots, or previous crops of parsley and dill were grown. Ideally, the predecessors should have been potatoes, eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, or garlic.

How to sow dill and parsley correctly for quick sprouting

It's advisable to sow herbs in soil previously enriched with fertilizers like compost, manure, or mineral fertilizers. To promote quick seed germination, prepare the seeds by soaking them in warm water for a day. Change the water 5-6 times throughout the day. A couple of days before sowing, water the soil to ensure it retains moisture.

Sow the seeds at appropriate distances; if planted densely, the plants will shade each other. Create furrows 1-2 cm deep spaced 15-20 cm apart. Ideally, seeds should be spaced 1-2 cm apart. Alternatively, you can create furrows up to 5 cm wide and scatter the seeds 1-2 cm apart, but not in a straight line; rather, in a zigzag pattern to provide ample space for growth. If the plants begin to interfere with each other, thin out the beds.

Dill and parsley can be planted regularly, at intervals of two weeks. This allows for continuous harvesting throughout spring, summer, and fall.

The most favorable time for sowing dill and parsley is during the waxing moon phase.
