In October, on a whim, i potted up the 3-foot tall lemon verbena that had been growing in the herb garden all summer. Its leaves immediately died, due to transplant shock, so i pruned the stems down to 3 inches, and waited.
Now, 2 months later, the bare stalks are sprouting new growth.
Patience is a cure-all quality, good for just about every situation.
Now that my indoors herb garden is growing, i can add lemon verbena the next time i cook chicken.
