Q.Dill Plants Did Not Do Well This Year

Zone 4 or 5 | EJ added on August 10, 2011 | Answered

My dill plants did not do well this year, as they remained very small. This is the first year I tried to grow dill from small plants. My garden is small but has a lot of sun. The soil is somewhat compacted but I fertilize in the spring with manure and humus.

There are several things that could have happened. Since the soil is a bit compacted, it may be that the roots, which were use to growing in a looser medium, may have had a hard time in the more compacted medium. It cold also be that they were not able to get enough water.
