It's a pretty easy process. You can use any branch as a cutting although I find the newer growth will respond faster. I trim the cuttings up under clean water and place them in a mason jar with fresh water. The water should be changed every three days.

I usually set the jars on window ledges as I find partial sun works the best.

You get roots in about two weeks, sometimes three. I have yet to have a cutting not grow roots, it just takes a bit of patience.

Beautiful! I did this with basil one summer, planted up dozens of new plants from cuttings. Also tried it with some tomatoes this year - except I just stuck the cuttings into soil, worked great. I'll have to try it with rosemary next!
