Growing Leeks

Last week I experimented in the kitchen & bought lots of things I wouldn’t normally buy; prawns, lemongrass, coriander, sesame oil, fish sauce, leek, red chillis.
A few of the items still had their roots attached & it got me thinking. I had seen that you could put spring onions in a glass of water & they would regrow. There should be no reason why anything else with it’s root intact would be any different.
Here is a leek after being in water for 1 week. It was sliced cleanly off but has grown quite a bit in a week.
I have also put some coriander in some water but I can’t tell if it is making any progress.
I also have some garlic cloves that seem to have sprouted in the cupboard, I might pop them into done soil & see what happens.
