Dill plant growing

How do you prune the dill so it keeps growing?

How to prune dill aerogarden

Why should you prune your aerogarden? Do it to pinch at the growth tips of your dill plants, forcing them to branch and increase their yields. Also do it so the dill doesn’t get too tall and risk falling over. To achieve these two things, pinch at the growing tips of your dill plants, forcing them to branch. You can start when it has around five leaves (somewhere between four and eight weeks after planting). To keep harvests coming, prune by cutting off leaves a few inches above the soil level when they are fully grown. Regular light pruning will leave more leafy growth for harvesting later.

Will dill regrow when cut

The best way to go about harvesting dill is to cut it early and often. Dills grassy texture and fresh taste mean it should be harvested before the plant sends up its flower stalk. While some gardeners allow the flower stalk to grow and later dry the seeds, it generally results in an undesirable bitter flavor if you let it grow too long.

Dill is a tall herb plant and tends to get too long if not trimmed or pruned regularly. If your dill plant seems too “wild,” cut the leaves from the top or remove entire stems accordingly.

Growing dill in pots inside

Dill is a delicious herb—and it’s easy to grow indoors. Plant your dill in an unglazed terra cotta pot 8 inches deep and make sure the pot has drainage holes. Water sparingly when the soil is dry, provide adequate lighting and make sure the temperature doesn’t dip below 60°F and your dill plant will thrive all year!

Don’t discard your dill plants after the growing season is over! To harvest dill seeds, wait until the seeds start to turn brown. As the seed clusters gain weight, they may need staking to keep them high and dry. Gather the ripe seed heads by clipping them into a paper bag, and place the bag in a warm, dry place indoors for a week or more. When you’re ready to plant your seeds for next year, gently crush the seed heads and shake out their contents.
