On a recent trip to the supermarket I was astounded by the cost of a bunch of herbs. I grow a lot of my own herbs, but the one herb that I just cannot seem to not kill is coriander, and so on my trip out I was shocked to find out that a mere sprig of coriander would set me back over $4. Wow!


Get green fingers


Don't buy herbs, grow them

A packet of seeds to grow herbs costs as little as $1.50 (depends on your variety), and a little seedling plant, doesn't cost much more at around $2-4. However, from a small outlay, you then get a growing herb plant to keep that will keep you stocked in fresh herbs with no further purchases required. If you've got a friend with an already established herb plant, then you could always ask for a free cutting to get you started.

As a further added bonus, when your own herb plant is blooming, you could do some cuttings of your own and create some potted herb gifts for your friends.

Do you grow your own herbs? What are your favourite herbs?
