Certain herbs are extremely easy to root and grow from ‘slips’ which you have gotten from fresh herbs purchased. Examples are basil, mints and oreganos for example which can be kept in water until they are rooted and can then be planted. Certain herbs which are woodier will be better rooted in a growing medium for example thyme, sage, rosemary etc. Propagating is not difficult at all; it’s just a case of knowing what you are doing. The internet is again full of articles and videos which can help you to learn how to propagate plants.
Then there is the fact that certain people are living in flats and small spaces and don’t necessarily have the space to grow plants or even do not have gardens. Do not be discouraged. There are still some projects which you can partake in. You can even if you have sunny window sills, try your hand at growing some herbs and veg in limited quantities in pots, containers etc. Or here are two other options as well.
Example 1: Microgreens.
This is process of growing plants and cutting the young shoots to be used for salads, soups, decorating meals etc. These microgreens are full of nutrient and pack more a health punch then even the adult plants do some say. You do not need a lot of space to do this; sunny window sills will do the trick here. Pie containers are very useful for microgreen growing, but shallow containers of any sort will work as long as drainage holes are created. Use a seedling mix as a planting medium. See above in blog for homemade seedling mix. Some good plant seeds to grow which you may find in your pantry are Alfalfa, sunflowers, dill, wheatgrass, flax, chia, buckwheat and mustard. Otherwise there is a possibility that some of the supermarkets which are open and selling might have some seed packets still available for seed which will extend what you can grow. Chives, beetroot, radishes, onions, broccoli, cauliflowers and cabbage are other examples of good microgreens.
