Where the Rosemary Thrives

Last year's rosemary cuttings made nice plants.


  1. Your rosemary did very well. I remember you just stuck it directly in the ground. What did you do about watering it, keeping it from drying out?

    I notice you have changed your picture at the top of your page. What is that plant?

  2. Very little watering. Most of the time it was on its own. That pictured is beside the birdbath that gets 6-10 drops of water an hour, barely enough to keep it filled as the critters drink. (Some mornings it is nearly empty.) The rosemary on the opposite quad did almost as well, with even less.

    The plant with the white tufts is Little Bluestem. the smaller grasses around it are some kind of muhly species. It has been a great year for undisturbed grasses.

  3. Rosemary is such a pretty plant. I killed some by transplanting it earlier this year... I'll have to remember to try taking cuttings next time.

  4. I also killed some that I transplanted. When you take cuttings, try to get a 'heel' from the main stem on the end of your cutting.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
