Storing your herbs

If you’re contemplating growing your own herbs at home, but are worried about proper storage, we are here to help! We have a few tips on how to maintain some of the most popular herbs.

First of all, long-stemmed herbs like basil, parsley, and cilantro can be cared for as if they were flowers. Trim them every few days and keep them in about one inch of water. Remember not to refrigerate them and they can last up to one week.

Other herbs like chives, thyme, and rosemary should be kept in the warmest part of the fridge (usually in one of the compartments of the door), wrapped loosely in some plastic wrap.

It is also best not to rinse the herbs until right before use.

Now, go forth with your new-found herb storage knowledge and grow a forest of herbs!
