Growing rosemary, this wonderfully aromatic herb is vital in many kitchens. It has long narrow leaves, and colorful flowers. In the right conditions it can be a very hearty herb to grow. Some even grow them into hedges. They make beautiful additions to landscaping, while also adding a beautiful aroma to the air.
*Starting from seed is a slow process. Buying plants, instead is a great way to start out.*
Buy bigger plants rather than buying the small 1 or 2 inches.
Rosemary is a slow grower, especially in the first year.
In early spring, stores will be selling the larger rosemary plants. They usually sell out pretty quickly, so make sure to grab as many as you need or want. They usually run about $15-$20.
*Soil should be well draining*, and have a pH of 5 to 8.
