Growing Herbs in water

 Growing herbs at your home is one of the most easy and rewarding part of gardening . Herbs are popular for adding distinct flavor to your food and are also packed with essential nutrients required by our body . Herbs can be grown through seeds and also easily through stem cuttings . Herbs such as Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary, peppermint and many others  stem cuttings can be   grown in water easily. .                                                    



Method of growing herbs in water 

Pluck a stem from herb plant like a basil plant as shown in the below image and immerse the below part of stem in the water 

                                                                             


After a couple of days we can observe the roots growing on the stem and this is the time for planting the stem in the soil mixture.


Meanwhile there is a continuous rain going on as an effect of Cyclone Tauktae in the country which turns out to be  a rejuvenation for garden plants in hot summer days.

                                                      Periwinkle plant drenched in rain 


 And  an Indian Kingfisher spotted 


                                                                 




These travel and journeys are what I miss in this pandemic era

  11. Greetings and Salutations! I haven't seen a kingfisher in a long, long time now. I am a caretaker for my husband and we don't go fishing anymore. We used to see a kingfisher on the edge of Musky Bay. Adored seeing one only in a photograph this week. Thank you for sharing. Have a lovely week end. Be safe.

  12. That Kingfisher is so cute...looks like he is smaller than the ones we have here. Love seeing the plants in water. I had a celery stalk in water for awhile and it looked pretty! lol
