It sounds a bit like too much water when you mention that the plants grow well for a while then wilt and die. Dill likes good soil and manure but does not like to be wet. Wilting and then dying is often an indicator of too much water. This may not be the reason but I would try planting it in a raised mound and see if that helps.

Although dill is a hardy plant, it can be difficult to transplant young seedlings. Since dill does not transplant as well as other plants, plant dill seeds wherever you plan to grow them for the season.
