Question about Dill
Posted 10 May 2009 - 05:47 PM
1. It is growing long and stemy can I top it can it grow back?
2. It is now flowering what do I do with the flower? I have have been using the "leaves"
wife to a darling man since 1981 and mother to 3 wonderful young men.
Don't tick off a redhead it very well could be the last thing you ever do.

I find the timing of the the self-sown seed to be a little early for my use in pickles. By the time my cucumbers start producing well, the dill has already flowered and I don't have enough in the right stage for my needs. I try to start my own to flower a little later.

If you want it to come back year after year, let it go to seed. It will do it's own thing and before long, you will have a bunch of it. I'm growing dill for myself this year, but my gramma gave me this advice.
