Answer: Dill seeds need light to germinate, so perhaps you've been setting your seeds too deeply in the soil. You can start dill seeds anytime from spring through mid-summer outdoors. Try raking the seedbed smooth, sprinkling a little peatmoss on the surface, then broadcasting the dill seed on top. The peat will catch and hold the seeds, providing a light, moist place for them to germinate. You can expect the seeds to sprout in 21-25 days at temperatures of 60F - 75F degrees.
