Propagating Basil From CuttingsBasil can get costly, so why not propagate basil. It is very easy to do so! Get some cuttings from a basil plant and place into water. I reused a yogurt container and in a couple of days, you'll start to see the roots forming! The photo attached is an example of the roots in 1.5 weeks and almost ready to be planted in soil!

Thanks for the terrific tip (from one who also loves basil)! I've just tried the same thing with cherry tomatoes (I managed to keep one alive in the house all winter), and wow! What a difference in timing! Seeds take a good six weeks to get going and even then are tiny and fragile. Cuttings take off PDQ and I've got a good head start on them this year.

If you have an existing basil herb plant growing (or know someone who does) you could propagate and grow basil very quickly versus planting seeds.
