You may wish to amend heavy soils with a generous amount of organic matter to improve drainage and growing conditions. Dig a hole that is the same depth and twice the width of your Anethum, spreading the roots before settling into place. Space companion plants 30cm (12in) apart to allow enough room for plants to spread as they mature. Water thoroughly and deeply after planting.
Water freely throughout active growth and during periods of dry weather. Stake varieties that are exposed to adverse weather to retain a healthy structure. May need protection from cold weather conditions so it’s vital to transplant them or use protective wrapping when temperatures dramatically fall.
It is possible to propagate Anethum by seed in spring to mid-summer.
