1. A Little Pinch Goes A Long Way
Do you know that if you pinch the upper portions of your herb plant stems, it will encourage new leaf growth? Herbs have a natural instinct to stay alive and multiply, so when they are pinched, they send a signal to the dormant leaf buds to grow. Try it out yourself!
2. The High Pressure Way

4. Watering the Right Way
Top of the list for gardening tips is to water your plants deeply and thoroughly. As roots grow deeper into the ground, it becomes harder for water to reach the roots. Frequent, shallow waterings causes your plants to keep their roots near the surface, and this makes them less hardy and more likely to deteriorate when deprived of water.
