Keeping Herbs Fresh Tips?

jennifer810 | May 4, 2007 10:49 AM

I love fresh cilantro and basil. I pick up a bunch of each almost every shopping trip. But, I can't find a great way to keep them from wilting.

My questions:
1. How long should they last?
2. How do you store them? (I've tried in the fridge, out of the fridge, in air-tight bags, in breathable paper towels... )
3. Are they easy to grow at home?
