Many herbs can be propagated this way.
First, cut a stem from a plant or use any stem from the market with leaves on.
Stick the stem cutting in water until roots appeared! Water need to be changed daily for better results.
Bury the roots in soil until more young leaves appeared.
To allow the newly propagated mint plant to thrive, cut away the older stem at the top of the plant.
One year on, our mint plant is still thriving. Their scent is heavenly, grown in own made compost, and zero commercial fertilizers and pesticide. Visitors are often offered cutting from this plant. Herbs are best harvested often to keep them young.
Woody stems mean the plants have gotten old. The fragrance and taste of its leaves will wane as the plant aged.
In the following video, our green pot’s mint plant had grown old, BUT we can renew the plant by propagating the stems! 🙂
Summer will show how to do this –
See how simple it is to propagate an old mint plant? There is no need to add commercial fertilizer to renew our herbs at home.
My daughter harvests home grown mint straight from our plants for tea whenever there are tons of homework from school. 🙂
Our mint plants are grown without commercial fertilizer and pesticide, and they taste and smell amazing.
