I don't have green fingers.. and I have found herbs especially hard to grow.
Petunia gave me a pot of tarragon a while back.. and it was tall and beautiful, with lots of yummy leaves and pretty, fragrant flowers. I used the leaves in my roasts and the flowers in my salad. But alas, over a few weeks, the leaves turned brown and after a while, it became a pot of dried tarragon.
Frustrated, I trimmed away all the dried leaves and cut the plant up severely, leaving only a relatively short stump behind.
I thought I'd be throwing the entire pot away in no time.
To my surprise, however, green leaves started sprouting out everywhere.. and now, I have a pretty decent looking pot of tarragon again! No flowers yet.. but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
