I started basil, oregano and dill from seed quite some time ago. They're all thriving and the dill plant has begun to flower. I was told to trim the flowers from a basil plant when it flowers. Does the same hold true for all herbs? Should I snip the flowers from my dill plant?

Thanks for any advice you can offer

If you want dill seed, let them flower.

If you want to use dill leaves, best to keep them from flowering by pinching off any flower heads.

All depends on what you want to do with your dill.
