I wanted to plant my dill around my cucumbers but since the cucumbers are next to the tomato plant I didnt. I heard that dill attracts the tomato horn worm?? So I decided to plant the dill next to the okra. I am wondering if this will be okay??

Dill actually attracts Monarch and Viceroy caterpillars. Neither of which eat the night shades. My dill is planted all throughout my garden. I actually plant dill to attract the pollinators such as butteflies and humming birds. I plant the mammoth dill with the very large seed heads.
