ROSEMARY - Rosmarinus Officianalis
Rosemary is an aromatic Mediterranean herb used since ancient time to give exciting flavor to appetizers, meats, and sauces. The fragrant leaves can also be dried to give a piney scent to sachets, and moth preventatives. Historically the rosemary's distilled oil has been used for medicines and herbs.
LIGHT/TEMPERATURE: : Rosemary thrives in full sunlight coming from southern, eastern or western directions. Because it enjoys temperatures between 40 - 65 degrees, a sunny winter windowsill is an excellent location.
WATER: In full sun, summer-like environments, rosemary should be kept moist at all times. However, in northern climates, with long dark winters be careful not to over-water this plant. Water in moderate amounts and allow the soil to dry down slightly between waterings. Because of its resinous sap a slight wilt will be no problem for the rosemary plant.
Rosemary can be easily pruned to maintain its shape. And you can get a bonus of fresh rosemary for your kitchen.
At certain times of the year, these may be available in 4", or as hoops or topiaries in 4" or 6" pots.
NOTE: If you encounter insect pests and you are tempted to use insecticides, select one that is made for edible crops.
