Some of the more recent fairy gardens I have been making include herbs, which occasionally need to be cut back. These clippings can be very useful.
A few weeks ago I cut back some chocolate mint, purple sage and oregano. I decided to try to re-root the chocolate mint. To do this, I cut back some of the leaves at the very bottom of the clippings and put them in a small mason jar filled with water. Every few days I change out the water. The roots are growing nicely and I should be able to add them to some of my newest fairy gardens soon.
Chocolate mint, lavender, and other herbs like chamomile could be used to make tea or infuse sugar or salt, for example.
With the purple sage and oregano, I’ve decided to dry them. They are great for cooking. I could add them as seasoning to steak or on top of spaghetti. The possibilities are endless!
These are just a few ways to use the herbs from a fairy garden. How do you use herbs?
