It is best to use fresh dill as soon as possible.  For short-term storage, wrap dill in a damp towel or place upright in a container with an inch of water and refrigerate.  For long-term storage, try drying your dill.  We often freeze dill just as it is bunched by placing it in a freezer bag.  When you need a bit, just trim some off the frozen bunch and place the rest back in the freezer.
