Clone Your Herbs!

Considering I have a habit of killing them...(or feeding them to my kitties)...Re-Nest had a great posting on cloning your herbs! It's actually easier than it sounds.

They say:
Plants such as basil, mint, and oregano are incredibly easy to reproduce from cuttings — and a heck of a lot faster than growing from seed. So easy in fact, that it is practically criminal how quickly you can stock your entire garden from one small plant. I save time and money every season multiplying my basil crop in this way.

Herbs to Start in Water:
  • Basil
  • Broadleaf Thyme/Cuban Oregano
  • Mint
  • Oregano

Herbs to Start in Soil/Coir:
  • Broadleaf Thyme/Cuban Oregano
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Savory (Summer and Winter)
  • Scented Geraniums
  • Stevia
  • Thyme

I'm SO on this! If you don't hear from me in a month, it's because I cloned Audrey II ... and it got HUNGRY!!!
