I planted Mammoth Dill seeds about 6 weeks ago. I transferred them about 3 weeks ago and they took well. They now are about 3 feet tall and are starting to bloom seeds.
Here are my problems..
First, the plants are tall but they have very few dill leaves. About 6-8 inches separates each leaf. Since I like (and want) a lot of leaves, is there anything I can do to improve this? If I cut back on the height, will the plant grow wider or fuller? Or, do I need a different type of dill?
Second, the plant is already blooming seeds. Is it normal for the seeds to come this soon? Do the seeds form all season long? Last, year I planted Mammoth Dill seeds, but I started late in the season. After the seeds started the plant began to die. Will the plant die after the seeds form? Other than harvesting seeds for next year, I do not need seeds.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
