Herbs: propagating

For flavour and freshness home-grown herbs are unbeatable. Sowing and harvesting herbs such as coriander, chervil dill, parsley and basil regularly, adds freshness and vibrancy to your cooking and cuts food miles to zero. Propagating your own herbs is a satisfying way of avoiding the high prices of supermarket bunched or container-grown herbs.
