Fresh herbs might seem like a summer luxury, but you don’t need to settle for the dried kind when winter arrives. In this video No Fuss Guide, Alan Titchmarsh demonstrates the simple process of lifting herbs for winter, here chives, to grow indoors on the kitchen windowsill. This nifty technique can also be used for other perennial herbs like mint, marjoram (oregano) and lemon grass.
