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, don’t leave your rosemary near a hot window. Water carefully; rosemary hates wet feet but won’t thrive if it’s not watered with care.

 

Planting Rosemary

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. Don’t 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.
