    1. Buy

    Although Rosemary can be planted in the garden almost all year I prefer to buy in the spring and allow the new plant to adjust to the elements gradually. Also, the there always the best selection of plants at the nurseries in early sping.
    2. Plant

    Planting in early spring allows the plant to acclimate gradually before the harsh summer weather. Rosemary likes full sun.
    3. Prune

    Clip rosemary any time of the year to use. Rosemary is often used in topiary forms. Clip as needed to keep in shape.
    May
    1. Water

    Rosemary is pretty drought tolerant but both too much and too little water can damage the plant. The best method to water is during the growing season water deep and allow the plant to dry out between waterings.
  • Buy

    When's the best time to buy this plant? When can you buy these from seed (if you can)? When is it usually available? What are things to look for when you're buying it? Or anything other tidbit of information you can share!
