  • For your rosemary herb to grow healthy, you’ll need a big enough pot that has good drainage.
  • Make sure the soil is an organic, rich compost mix.
  • You can either plant rosemary from seed, or purchase a rosemary seedling from your local nursery. Purchasing an already grown rosemary plant is always best though, as rosemary can be a little tricky to grow directly from seed!
  • Once planted, spray the rosemary plant with some water, and make sure the soil is moist enough.

Caring for Your Rosemary Plant:

  • Set your rosemary plant on a windowsill which gets direct sunlight.
  • Rosemary plants love the sun, so make sure it receives at least 6-8 hours of sunlight.
  • Allow the top 2 inches of soil to dry out before watering again.
  • Use a liquid fertilizer once or twice a month.
  • Use a fan to prevent mildew forming on your plant. Place a fan right in front of your rosemary plant for a few hours each day. This will get the air circulating and prevent any mildew that the rosemary plant is prone to.

Harvesting Rosemary:
