I have been trying my hand at growing my own herbs recently, and hence been reading a lot of blogs to gather tips on how to do it right. I’ve had some luck though there is still a long way to go before I can boast about any of it 😉 A surprising tip I read was about growing spring onions or chives…some bloggers/ gardeners shared their experience of how simply placing the cut root-ends into a jar of water would make them grow again. Nothing can be that easy, right? So I tried it myself, straight from the refrigerator and into an empty salsa jar. I was ready to say tchahh! but look here what I got! New leaves started to show within a day of placing the roots in water. I am elated to say the least. If only everything in this world were as simple as growing chives!

  1. wow, this is weird. the only downside of it though is the fact that people use mostly the lower part of it, at least in Greece. The upper part is mostly used as decoration. One more comment: people have not realised how EASY it is to grow your own vegetables. Using old traditional ways, you can create the seeds from your fresh products. I do it for the last 3 years and i am not using ANY chemicals (i try to find and use traditional seeds, not the modified ones…)
