Rosemary is a perennial evergreen shrub with blue flowers. It is an aromatic and distinctive herb with a sweet, resinous flavor. Here’s how to grow your own rosemary plants.

 

Rosemary is ideal for a rock garden or the top of a dry wall. It is often used for seasoning poultry, lamb, stews, and soups.

 

PLANTING

 

For a head start, plant the seeds or cuttings indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost. See your local frost dates.

Plant the seeds/cuttings in well-drained soil. For best growth, the soil should be around 70ºF.

Be sure to give your plants enough room to grow. Rosemary grows to about 4 feet tall and spreads about 4 feet as well.

In the garden, plant near beans, cabbage, carrots, and sage. Learn more about companion planting with herbs.

CARE

After the rosemary plant flowers, remember to trim the plant.

For fresh rosemary in the winter, grow the plant indoors in a pot. Be sure to put it in bright light and cool temperatures.

Prune regularly so that the plant won’t get lanky.

Water the plants evenly throughout the growing season.

Be sure to get cuttings or divide the plant for next season.
