Can I still use my dill after it has flowered, and gone to seed? It's beginning to send up little yellow flowers now...

You can use the seeds too. Very strong flavour.


The secret is the soil.

You can use up to the time it seeds and gets dry and crispy. Keep in mind all those seeds will be little weeds next year!

Can the seeds be saved and planted in the spring, or will the plant come back on its own? I thought that dill was perennial.

Mine was, I planted 3 plants last year and this year I had 5 come up, but, 4 of them died from all the drenching rains we have had. This one doesn't seem to be wanting to flower this year. So maybe too much rain for that one too. So sad no dill for next year unless I buy more seeds :(.
