Want more plants? Root herb cut­tings in water

Herbs & Superfoods - - Grow Your Own Herb Garden -

Most an­nual and some peren­nial herbs will grow roots if cut­tings are placed in water. Try mint, basil, lemon balm, lemon ver­bena, mar­jo­ram, oregano, lemon­grass and fever­few. Choose healthy plants and pick non-flow­er­ing stems; re­move any buds and bot­tom leaves from the stems. Place your glass in bright light but avoid di­rect light. Change the water daily to pre­vent bac­te­ria from grow­ing. Once the roots are 1cm long, pot up in soil.
