Rosmarinus officinalis Care Guide

  • High

    Full direct sun outside (6-8 hrs.) Indoors bright direct sun.

  • Low

    Water when the soil dries out thoroughly.

  • High

    Humidity levels need to be between 45-55%. Spritz daily and add extra humidity.

  • 55 to 80

    Indoors: 55-80°F
    Air circulation is important to prevent mold and mildew spores from forming on the leaves.

  • 8|9|10|11

    Outdoors full sun (6-8 hrs.) where nights are above 10°F. Indoors in bright direct sun areas. When bringing indoors, cut back by 1/3 to overwinter.

  • Yearly

    Fertilize once a year in spring.

  • Rarely

    Repot infrequently since it may cause shock. Use well-draining soil mix.

  • As needed

    Prune to 1/3 before overwintering inside. Outside, prune after bloom to encourage bushiness and growth.

  • Cuttings

    Trim 3-4 inches off young shoots (without flowers) from the plant in the early morning when it's hydrated. Remove any lower leaves to contain the moisture in the stem. Trim right below the leaf node (where the leaf has sprouted). Use hormone rooting powder to dip the tips of the stems into to coat. Fill pots with a damp rooting soil mix that is well-draining with grit and compost mixed into it. Insert each stem in individual tray modules or small containers with drainage. Cover rosemary with a clear plastic bag to retain moisture and leave in a sheltered place with bright, indirect light. Check every two weeks for root development. Keep compost moist as the roots develop. Fertilize with a diluted rooting fertilizer solution periodically.  Pot into a container or plant in the garden the following spring. Begin the hardening off (acclimating to the outside) stage by placing the plant outdoors in a protected spot a few hours per day when temperatures are above 45°F. Increase the outdoor exposure each day by the amount of time so they can adjust. Do more and more time each day and observe the breezes, day and night temperatures and avoid any extremes. This process might take from 1-2 weeks to acclimate your new rosemary plants. Enjoy and share with your culinary foodies!
