Have kinda pruned a few plants and acquired a few new plants.

As compared with the parent plant.

    Hi Pauline!

    Unfortunately, I’d long thrown away my dill plant from becoming unhealthy. That was back when I was still new to gardening.

    However, with slightly more experience under me now, I’d suggest this: give your dill at least four hours of sun each day, and bright shade thereafter if possible. Water once everyday. That should be enough to keep your dill alive. Do note that dill is an annual plant. So it’d die within about a year. If it sets seed, collect the seeds and re-sow. That’s the only way of propagating it.

    Rosemary needs a very well-draining soil, and as much sun as you can give it. If it’s under full blasting sun, you can probably water it everyday provided the soil isn’t water retentive; or else, maybe twice or thrice a week is good enough. Poke your finger into the soil – if it’s too wet, don’t water. You’ll need to try out a few combination of soil mixes etc.

    Mulberries are quite easy. I refer you to this lady’s post: Mulberries.

    I hope these help a bit.
