Growing Dill

Why does dill seem to not like being repotted? Every time I've tried it dies within a week. I've had very little success trying to grow from seed. Any tips for reducing shock and successfully repotting dill would be much appreciated:-)

Dill grows a taproot, therefore it does not transplant well. The reason for its intolerance is that the taproot is usually damaged during transplantation or is replanted such that the taproot can't grow, i.e. in packed soil.
