Here are some basics …
- A number of vegetables regrow from their white root ends. So place vegetable ends in a glass or dish of water until they sprout or regrow roots and then plant them in nutrient-rich soil.
- Leave potatoes or sweet potatoes until they sprout. Cut off a section that has one or two eyes and let it dry out a little. Plant the section ‘eyes up’ and let nature do its work.
Vegetables and herbs you can have fun regrowing include: Potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic, onion, spring onion, leek, fennel, celery, bok choy, romaine lettuce, coriander, basil, ginger, cabbage, and parsnips (though parsnips are difficult to grow).
Before you know it you’ll be eating your own home grown vegetables, free from pesticides, and feeling great you’ve made this small contribution to our planet.
