How to plant & care for Rosemary

This group of herbs grow best when the soil is kept moist but not wet. Be sure to plant in well-draining soil to prevent overwatering.
This group of herbs will love to be placed in a spot that is sunny majority of the day, but can tolerate some shade as well!
Prune and clean up dead stems off of last year's growth. In spring, prune them back by one-third or within 4 inches of the soil. This encourages new growth in a bushy and more compact form.
The easiest way to propagate these herbs is to cut parts of the top of the shoots. The cuttings should have about one inch length. You can either let the cuttings grow roots first in a glass with water, or you plant the cuttings immediately into soil. Just make sure to keep the soil dry for the first 2-3 weeks as the cuttings need to develop roots first.
Herbs that receive high levels of nutrients, particularly nitrogen, produce inferior growth with little flavor or fragrance. For that reason, avoid overfertilizing your herbs.
