Want to plant herbs in mason jars instead? HERE is a post for that.
Basic Storage for Longer-Lasting Herbs
*This method is for soft herbs only: basil, cilantro, parsley
1. Snip the ends of the herb stems (as you would with flowers).
2. Fill a glass or jar* less than halfway with water (enough to cover bottom of stems).
3. Place herbs in the jar and cover loosely with a plastic bag (I save bags and reuse them). Cilantro is best in the refrigerator. Basil likes room temp (on a counter). Parsley will take either (refrigerated works best for me).
4. Change water out every 3-5 days. Herbs should last anywhere from 2-4 weeks (or longer).
*I use pint sized mason jars because they are more sturdy than a drinking glass. (I'm clumsy and I may or may not have spilled a glass of herbs.)
