I like to cook but am pretty much an herb noob, so I thought I'd give to see if I can grow some fresh tarragon that I got at the supermarket and then to play around with it as it grows (hopefully). The plant looked healthy and had good roots, but after I untangled the stems and planted it, it got pretty droopy looking. I'm hoping it will perk back up with some water and sunlight.

I'm by no means a plant expert, but my guess would be that it's a little droopy looking because it was in the box and it didn't have to support itself for a while. With watering and time I'd guess that it'll perk up if it's still viable.

I hope so. I just used one sprig to cook some chicken with, and although I never recalled having it before when I bought it, I immediately remembered that a nice restaurant I worked at 16 years ago served a compound butter made with the herb. It was sooo yummy.

yeah they are like oh crap gravity is back!

you could try supporting them with a string if you want it pretty but it should be fine.

Most of the leaves dried up completely, however the stems still seem ok... maybe I should start with some seed...
