Dumb question of the day....
Sorry this is such a basic question, but you just don't know till you ask. Last year I had great success with using parsley for BST's to lay eggs in my garden in south central Ohio. This year I decided to add dill to the mix and have already found 2 bst cats. I have never grown dill before. My question is...how and at what point do you trim your dill. I have a plant that has produced a couple yellow flowers. Is it going to seed? Do you leave the flowers on or cut them off? Now that the top part has been eaten off by cats, do you trim it way back and it will grow back fuller?
Next question is about parsley. The curly parsley planted last year never really died over winter and stayed pretty green. It is now sending off tall flower shoots. I have cut those off since my host plants are tucked within my flower beds. I have read parsley is a biennial and was wondering what to expect out of it the second year.
I also have second year rue growing that has flowers...do you let them flower or cut them off?
Thanks in advance for your response!
