Bushy dill is a new variety with an average ripening period. According to the State Register of the Russian Federation, the herbaceous crop is intended for cultivation in small farms, in personal plots, and garden areas.
Description of the variety of dill Bushy
Dill of the Bushy variety belongs to the group of the abundant-leaved type. In height, the bush grows to 150-180 cm. The form is compact. The socket is raised. The height reaches 35-40 cm. As a rule, 10-12 leaves grow on it.
Dill Bushy due to the close internodes forms a large amount of foliage. The leaves are large, dark green in color, with a slight waxy bloom. The form is strongly dissected, with flattened lobes. The greens are soft, juicy. The aroma is intense, due to the high content of essential oils.

That I just didn’t do with this dill. I planted it in a greenhouse, sowed it under a film, added it to conservation, dried it, salted it, and froze it. I especially love fresh herbs. Therefore, I sowed it in a pot and put it on the window in the house. I got up, and now I'm waiting for the harvest.
