Growing Rosemary

Rosemary can be grown both by seed sowing and propagation. The germination rates are quite low when growing from seeds, therefore, it’s strongly recommended to grow the plants from cuttings. Cuttings grow quickly when provided viable conditions. The best time to plant the seeds or cuttings is 8-10 weeks before the last spring frost.


To grow the plant from seeds, sow it first indoors in seedling trays and then transplant it to a bigger pot when the seedling is at least 5-6 inches tall. Make sure to keep the soil moist. Seeds usually take 2-3 weeks to germinate.


For propagating through stem cutting, take approximately 2 inches (5 cm) long cuttings and pluck away the leaves on the bottom two-thirds of the stem cutting. Plant the cuttings in a well-draining and loose potting mixture and keep the soil moist but not soggy till the cutting roots. Once the roots have developed and plants have established themselves, put them in an area of full to partial sun and watch them grow.
