Everything you need to know about feeding dill and parsley

We have always grown a lot of greenery at the dacha, and this year they decided to double the planting so that there was still more to sell. Tell me how to feed dill and parsley so that the bushes quickly grow deciduous and be plump? I would like our product to have a beautiful presentation, but at the same time it remains useful.

dill and parsley One of the first to plant greens in the garden: bright green even beds of parsley with dill often occupy the main advanced positions on the site in order to always be at hand, because the hostess uses fragrant spicy herbs in almost every dish. In principle, the harvest of fragrant greens can be obtained on almost any soil, if the plantings have enough light and moisture. But in order for the spices to grow lush bushes, it is better to provide them with good nutrition..

How to feed dill and parsley? When growing these crops, two significant stages of fertilization can be distinguished, which have an impact on the future harvest:

  • pre-plant dressing:
  • feeding during the growing season.

What fertilizers to apply to the soil before planting?humus introduction

It is advisable to prepare beds for greenery in the fall, adding humus for digging (0.5 buckets per 1 sq.m.). In addition, it would be nice to add a mineral complex consisting of the following components (also based on 1 sq.m.):

  • ammonium nitrate – 20-25 g;
  • potassium salt – up to 20 g;
  • superphosphate – no more than 30 g.

A complex of mineral fertilizers is also allowed to be applied in the spring, immediately before sowing parsley and dill..

Wood ash is not recommended to be used before planting greens, especially dill, as it gives the grass twigs a red tint..

How to fertilize spicy beds after germination?parsley

In terms of dressing, parsley is more demanding than dill, especially its varieties, which have different needs, namely:

  1. Leafy varieties are more in need of nitrogen fertilization for growing leaf mass. To do this, 2-3 times during the entire growing season, ammonium nitrate (5 g per 1 sq.m.) is applied to the beds..
  2. In root varieties, the entire nutritional value is not in the leaves, but in the “roots”, so for them the emphasis should be on the potassium-phosphorus complexes. At the end of summer, potash salt is added to each square meter of spicy beds in an amount of 5 g and a little more, 7 g, superphosphate.

DillAs for dill, if the land was well fertilized before planting, this is quite enough in the future. The only thing is that to stimulate growth and tillering, as well as to prevent yellowing of the foliage, a couple of weeks after sowing, you can fertilize with ammonium nitrate, but not too much – 8 g per square of area is enough.infusion of nettle

Subsequent top dressing depends on the state of the dill beds. If the bushes are poorly developed, they are watered with a nutrient solution of “green fertilizer” (for example, based on nettle).
