Rosemary Growing Tips and Advice
Rosemary craves attention, the sun and lime-rich soil. If you live in subzero winter temperatures, grow your rosemary in containers so you can move the plants to a cool, sunny room in the winter. If you live in a warm climate, dont leave your rosemary near a hot window. Water carefully; rosemary hates wet feet but wont thrive if its not watered with care.
Start with plants grown from cuttings,
since rosemary often is hard to grow from seed. Grow in sandy soil with
pH level of 7-8. Pinch the tips to direct growth. Once you have a well-established
plant, increase your supply by taking cuttings. Dont take more
than 20 percent of the plant, however. Check container-grown plants
twice a year and shift to larger containers when roots become crowded.
Some varieties of rosemary grow as high as six feet.
