Dill is a thermophilic plant, therefore, the site for planting is chosen sunny without gusty winds. Before planting the seeds, the bed is carefully dug up and fertilized with organic and mineral fertilizers. If the soil is acidified, it is diluted with slaked lime or dolomite flour.

Growing technology

Dill Russian giant, according to reviews and photos, is an unpretentious culture, but to get a generous harvest, you must follow simple rules:

  1. Planting must be thinned out 2 weeks after seed germination. The spacing between plants should be at least 10 cm.
  2. High soil moisture is the key to a good harvest. If the dill does not have enough moisture, then the foliage will be shallow and less fragrant. Irrigation is carried out 2 times a week, spending on 1 sq. m up to 500 ml of water.
  3. After watering, the soil is loosened and weeds are removed.
  4. If there is a chance of spring frosts, it is better to cover the crops with agrofibre.
  5. Since dill absorbs nitrates, it is better to use nettle infusion as a top dressing.

You can start collecting greens when the seedlings reach 20 cm (this is about a month after sowing the seeds). A few hours before harvesting, the bushes are sprayed with water. The harvested harvest is consumed fresh, preparations are made for the winter (drying and freezing).

Dill The Russian giant is immune to many fungal diseases. But if the agrotechnical rules are not followed, the following diseases may appear on the bush:

  1. Rust - in early summer, bright orange pads appear on the inside of the foliage, stem and petioles, which eventually grow into irregular spots. If a fungus is found, the plant is treated with Bordeaux liquid. Treatment is stopped 2 weeks before harvest.
  2. Phomosis - affects the whole plant. The aerial part is covered with dark oval spots with numerous dots. Infected roots develop dark streaks in rows. You can get rid of the disease by treating the plant with broad-spectrum fungicides. After processing, the cut greens are thoroughly washed and poured over with boiling water.
  3. Aphids - insect colonies are located on the inside of the leaf and shoots. You can get rid of insects with onion or garlic infusion with the addition of laundry soap.

Important! Dill quickly accumulates nitrate compounds, so it is better to fight diseases and pests with folk remedies.

I saw a photo of the Russian giant dill variety on the Internet. I liked the variety for a sprawling bush with rich olive greens. I got seeds and planted them before winter. In the spring, a couple of weeks after the snow melted, sprouts began to appear. A month later, she took off the first crop of fragrant, juicy foliage. Thanks to good bushiness and late flowering, I got up to 300 g of greenery from the bush.

If I do not have time to harvest the harvest in the fall, then the dill Russian giant multiplies by self-sowing. The harvest appears earlier, more aromatic and juicy. Due to its high fruiting, I use dill fresh, it is also enough for drying and freezing.
