    Default Dill problem

    I planted my dill out weeks ago and it was doing just fine, this past week it has started drooping to the ground and turning brown, any ideas what could be wrong?

    Could be lack of water but I think Dill being umbeliferous can be susceptable to carrot fly? Not sure about this though, maybe I just dreamed it!

    Looks like it could be carrot fly then, we've had plenty of rain so I doubt its a watering issue.

    Thanks for the replies everyone
