There is a great thing on the market. It is a plastic cylinder, called an "herb keeper"...you put the stalks of herbs into it, and fill it up to the water line, (about 2" of water) and then it has a plug-like wooden cap...The whole thing goes into the refrigerator. It works GREAT! The herbs stay fresh, literally for weeks.
I don't see why the same thing could not be made with a little creativity by following the same principles, if you didn't want to spend the money on them. (if you use more than one type of fresh herb, you would want one for each which can get expensive.)
Another alternative, which I used before purchasing my "keeper" was to soak a few paper towel sections and wrap them around the base of the stems and and about an inch of water to a large plastic cup...Set the herbs in there and put the whole thing into the fridge. It works pretty well also.
