I just discovered that dill is good for tomatoes, but mature dill can stunt tomato growth. So, I went and pulled all the mature dill out from around my cherry tomato plants. Is it too late?
No, your plants will be just fine. It is best to keep the Dill from going to seed if planted near your Tomatoes.
What are the very small white worms that come off or out of the dill when I soak the dill heads in water? I have used different solutions to soak the dill, such as water with a few drops of Dawn dish soap with some vinegar and also used hot water and always have a few worms in the water.
This could be Swallowtail Butterfly caterpillars. They commonly are found on Dill, though they love Parsley too.
Washing and rinsing your Dill should be all you need to dislodge the caterpillars.
Will dill seeds sold as a spice produce dill plants?
Any seeds obtained from a spice jar may or may not grow into plants. Most will have poor germination, because seeds sold as spice are not stored in the proper way for maintaining the health and viability of the seeds. You could try germinating some in a paper towel, but it's more reliable to buy garden dill seed.

Does the age of the dill plant affect its appearance, aroma and texture? I bought some fresh cut dill for cooking that was very feathery and fine, and had quite a distinct aroma. Some dill I bought recently did not have the same qualities. The leaves were less fine and the aroma didn't seem obvious (photo attached). Could this have been a different variety or just from an older plant? Thank you Rosanna
Yes, there are many different varieties of Dill.
It may not be easy to identify culinary varieties unless they are labeled.
Here is a great article the highlights some of varieties that are commonly grown.
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.

Is dill a pereniel? or will the fallen seeds winter and grow next Spring?
Dill is technically a biennial. This means that it will grow, vegetatively, the first year, and seed the next. However the seeds typically will take its place the next season.
