I do grow, and allow volunteers to grow- of fern leaf dill. It starts out with delicate little 'fronds?' but then it disappears into this long stemmed bare of anything but flowerlets/seeds. Tiny very potent full of life seeds- seems I never get enough of em stripped off that stem! Is this normal? Am I just not missing something chowing down on everything but flower? The fronds are gone. Yes, partial shade, long stems are chasing sun, but no fronds.

Kittriana ~ mine do the same. I have been growing a couple of types of smaller dill and they both do the same.

I just assumed the foliage was sensistive to heat and when the dill bolted with blooms, the foliage died back.

You mean you don't eat the blooms and the seeds too? You are missing some nummy treats. lol

You must be home to be puzzling over this conundrum. Kristi

Don't know if the kids would shoot me or not for dill in their dinner, hehehe.
