Default brewing with full hops

I have a nice batch of cascade hops I picked and dried. It is my first time using hops this way.

Should I crush them just before putting them in the boil?

I was also thinking of dry hopping with them,what are the pro's and con's?


Thanks

Use homegrown hops just like you would use store bought. No need to crush them, just throw them in the boil. Same with dry hopping.
