Why Don't You...Root Your Basil?

Okay, I'm back on the blogging wagon now that the kids are back in school. I have a new feature called "Why Don't You..." Wednesdays with cool little tips and ideas for the week. Here goes!

Let's root our own little basil plant for our Windowsill Chalkboard Pots?

Just take a snip of your garden Basil (or your neighbor's Basil, shhh!) and place it in water. In about 2 weeks it will have a nice root system and you can plant it for fresh winter herbs! Yahoo!



Want a whole window herb garden? Oregano, lavender, rosemary, thyme and sage can all be rooted using the same method!

  8. That's awesome! I always stick my green onions in water (the ends after I have used the greens) and watch the green regrow and regrow and regrow....it's crazy! I'm gonna try your basil thing, so I can have 2 plants instead of one:)

  11. I just did that this summer! My basil still didn't really want to grow, but that might have had something to do with my erratic watering schedule.
    I love fresh herbs so I'll keep at it.

  12. I'm going to try this. I'd love to have fresh basil to cook with this winter. I hope I can make it work. I'm not very good with plants.
