Q.

Long Island Mammoth Dill

Zone 86409 | JameySue added on March 21, 2017 | Answered

I sowed dill seeds on Feb. 2 in a greenhouse with Miracle Grow soil for vegetables and herbs. They are now about 6" tall and seems to be growing good. I am noticing that the bottom of the dill plant, the leaves are getting thicker and turning like an almost purple. Is that normal? Should I just move my planting pot outside? I live in Arizona and I just don't want them to burn. Thank you, New Gardner from Arizona.

You can move your plants outdoors but you will need to do this slowly.
It is called hardening them off.

You need to gradually get them used to the conditions outdoors.
