(Rosmarina officinalis) Tender perennial to 30 inches. The plant has been used for centuries both medicinally and in the kitchen. Small evergreen shrub is covered with needle-like aromatic leaves and a myriad of tiny pink or blue flowers in summer. Perennial in mild-winter climates; elsewhere, grow in containers for overwintering indoors. The dark green leaves may be used fresh or dried. Flowers are beloved by bees. We offer select seed, that is easier to start, but it still can be somewhat challenging to start. The plants are lovely and can live for years with proper care.

Review:

I sowed seeds 7 days ago in sterlized seed starting soil. Covered with plastic wrap and kept in a room that is pretty consistently 70 degrees. Now I have at least 20 tiny seedlings. So I'm pleasantly surprised by the high germination rate and how quickly they sprouted. I plan to grow these under plant lights before transplanting outside well after danger of frost is past. In the past I've only been able to keep rosemary plants alive through the winter here in Virginia by growing in a sheltered place, like against a south facing wall, and mulching well for extra protection.

What are the pros? Germ to plant results, smell

What are the cons? Hard to keep alive in pots

Review:

I posted a review earlier about having a great germination result in spring of 2016. Well I ended up getting 8 rosemary plants to grow to full plants in pots. In fact I trashed some seedlings when transplanting because I simply didn't have room or need more plants. A few plants that I put directly into the garden ground did not progress and died off. Of the 8 in the pots, 3 grew into very nice smaller sized bushes. The rest never really grew into full plants, they were slower and more spindly, and had some dying off of lower branches as the summer progressed. Partly this may be my fault as I did not have good potting soil at time of transplant and used what I had. Overall the entire experience of growing these from seed was every positive and the resulting plants are amazing. Everyone that smells them is amazed and falls in love with the plant. I have my two best on an enclosed porch for the winter and am hoping I can get these through to spring and keep them going.

Surprising Germination Results

EarlyMaturity 0.0
 

What are the pros? Germ. easier than expected

What are the cons? none yet

Review:

I purchased these seeds a bit reluctantly based on the general info on challenges with germination. I planted the seeds in a tray exactly a week ago, using a mix of potting soil with some worm castings added in. Used a humidity dome on the tray instead of the saran wrap suggestions. Well I am so happy to see that I already have 7 sprouts well up out of the soil! Based on all the information this is more than a little surprising for me given all the information here and online regarding germination. Maybe my results aren't typical, but I am extremely pleased. This is an early review of course, hopefully I can get these to seedlings to propagate into plants. I will update with another review at a later time, but I just had to post this review now based on my surprise and pleasure with the early results.

Great Herb SLOW GROWING

EarlyMaturity 1.0
 

What are the pros? Great flavored herb

What are the cons? Extremely slow growing

Review:

This herb is a must. Dried rosemary you buy in store is awful - nothing like fresh. I use this herb in place of Thyme - it is just as good. I brought in a plant indoors from my garden two years ago, and it is still doing great. This plant grows SLOW, so plant several if you are going to harvest a lot of it. This is one of my favorite herbs.
