What's the secret to growing great dill?

When I direct-sow seeds, they come up quickly but then grow very slowly. The seed I planted a month ago is barely 2" high. Is there anything I can do to speed things along? The variety I sowed this year is "Bouquet", but I have the same problem every year so I now think the problem is on my end, not something do with the cultivar. FWIW, the transplants I buy in May always do well (but eventually get stripped by the swallowtail caterpillars -- good for them, bad for me). Area is full sun.
