Basil and mint from cuttings

A super-easy way to create new plants for indoor pots (or to increase your outdoor garden) is to propagate by cuttings. I have a few cuttings of basil and mint in this glass of water - in a few days they will have wee white roots and that is the time to pop them gently into the soil. I use organic potting soil.
You can also do this with those packets of fresh herbs purchased from the produce section of the grocery store!
