Have you ever tried to grow those tempting super market herbs that still have their roots attached? On this week’s You Bet Your Garden, host Mike McGrath will reveal why the task seems so hard—and suggest a better way to get herbal indoors. Plus your fabulous phone calls!
Question of the Week:
I’m an amateur gardener and cook. I buy live herbs at the grocery store for 2.99 each and repeatedly try—but fail—to keep them alive for more than two weeks in my kitchen. My house is on the water and gets a lot of light, but my kitchen faces North and West; and after just a few days cilantro, parsley, basil, sage, dill and everything but mint droop and then die. Please help; I set my alarm every Saturday to catch your show with my coffee!
