After the plant flowers, remember to trim the plant. For fresh rosemary in the winter, grow the plant indoors in a pot. Be sure to put it in bright light and cool temperatures. Prune regularly so that the plant won t get lanky. Water the plants evenly throughout the growing season. Be sure to get cuttings or divide the plant for next season. To prevent mildew and rot, be sure your plants enjoy good drainage and air circulation.
For a head start, plant the seeds or cuttings indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost. Plant the seeds/cuttings in well-drained soil. For best growth, the soil should be around 70 degrees C.
Be sure to give your plants enough room to grow. Rosemary grows to about 4 feet tall and spreads about 4 feet as well. In the garden, plant near beans, cabbage, carrots, and sage.
