After searching for months online for someone who sells culinary herbs like rosemary, thyme etc, I finally found a shop in Bangalore who sell herb seedlings (Not seeds). I managed to get rosemary, thyme, lavender, peppermint and sage. Not bad to start with a small herbal garden. What I read online, it is easier to propagate herbs than starting it with seed. Once these little guys settle down in the container I assign to them and thrive well in the provided space, I can go on to experiment with herb propagation.
