Q.Fall Preparation Of Dill Weed

Anonymous added on September 23, 2011 | Answered

I am wondering if I should cut dill down to ground for winter or just to approximately 6 inches from ground?

I also have mixed info on asparagus. Should it be trimmed to ground level or left tall and ferny till spring-then trim back?

Unfortunately, dill weed is considered an annual, though the seeds will usually overwinter in the soil. Therefore, it doesn't make much difference whether you cut it back to the ground or not. I would be sure to keep some seeds for next season should none of them pop up in spring, however. As for asparagus, here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/asparagus/cutting-asparagus-foliage-back-in-autumn.htm
