Multiply your plants/herbs for free

This is possibly the easiest thing I have ever done...
Do you remember this?
I cut few "branches" from our rosemary plant

...that was back in December.
Now it has been sitting in water in our glass jar for 2 months, and here it is.
today

2 months ago

I can't wait for Spring to come, so I can plant those outside!!
Free rosemary plants!!
Stay Frugal,

I used to always do this with ivy, but didn't think about starting more rosemary plants this way. Thanks for the tip.

What a great idea! I had no idea they'd sprout roots. Cool!

Kerry said...

I love this! Mine didn't do so well this winter, I think I needed to change the water more often or maybe the branches should have been longer.

Kelly said...

That's a great way to keep your herbs going! I love rosemary. It smells good, tastes good and looks good. LOL! I like it sprinkled over new red potatoes with butter baked in the oven. Yum!

Your cuttings look so healthy. I have
all sorts of cuttings on my kitchen
window sill and it's so nice to pinch
when for cooking.
Great shots

I had no idea that your could root rosemary like that. Much cheaper than buying a new plant a Lowe's. In the same spirit I am planting seeds instead of buying annuals this Spring. Wish me luck, I may need it.

Wow, I didn't know you could propagate rosemary that way!! This is now on my to do list, so thank you. Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven to say hi.
