Q.Growing dill weed
Hi, I used to grow dill weed about 48 years ago. The plants grew tall and the aroma was very strong and wonderful…..now I am 75 and interested in growing that kind of dill weed again. So far, all the seeds I buy grow a weak little mild plant that does not even remind me of dill……does anyone here know where I can buy, or trade seeds for this dill weed? Furthermore does this real old fashioned dill still exist? I want so bad to keep it on hand to make pickles and bread……please reply ….. email@example.com. or reply here…..thanks ahead of time for your reply, sincerely Carol B.

We can't really recommend places to purchase, but I would imagine that heirloom Dill will be on the market. Since there are many types, and were many types even decades ago it will be hard to pin down the exact cultivar. I would recommend checking your local nurseries, or online. Places like Amazon, Etsy, and Ebay will have carriers.
usually, any of the heirloom cultivars will have more "antique" characteristics. (I'm partial to heirloom cultivars of most plants, too!)
