10 Herbs You Can Grow in Water


You don't need a garden - or even a pot! These fresh herbs will brighten your home with their tastes and smells all year round.

Initial tips

Before you begin growing your herbs, keep these simple rules in mind:
- Try to avoid tap water. If you do not have access to other kinds of water, let the tap water air overnight to remove chlorine.
- Choose preferably tinted, dark-colored jars. The roots are accustomed to the dark and will grow better that way.
- Make sure that the plant is kept as upright as possible using containers with narrow openings.
- Change the water once a week until the roots begin to grow (this will take from 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the plant and other conditions).
