Rosemary (Rosy)

         
 
16 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(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. The plants are lovely and can live for years with proper care.

What are the pros? easy germination

What are the cons? non yet

Review:

I started seeds indoors in Light Warrior Seed Starter 8 days ago in a southern window next to my radiator. Just took the dome off to peak and literally every seed germinated. I have always gardened but never started seeds indoors.

What are the pros? Fairly easy, low maintence

What are the cons? Super slow growing, low germ

Review:

I tossed some of this in a pot this past spring and it was a very slow grower but didn't require much special care. I have brought it in for winter and love it! Getting more seed for next year. I hope to start it earlier in 2019 via winter sowing in a milk jug. The packet was clearly labeled low germination so this did not bother me. I do wish it grew faster and I did not get to see flowers. I do feel like it was not a normal growing year here in MN so I am looking forward to trying again.

What are the pros? The idea of growing rosemary

What are the cons? None sprouted. :(

Review:

I'm an avid home. Gardener and I know how to get seeds to sprout. Rosemary is notoriously difficult to germinate, but not one sprouted. I started them indoors with a heating mat in coconut coir under grow lights. Months later, nothing. I'm disappointed, but will buy another pack and try again. Meanwhile I got this year's rosemary from cuttings out of a packet of store bought fresh rosemary. It's much easier to root than to start from seed, so I might stick with that if my second try also fails.

What are the pros? Keeps growing, container plant

What are the cons? Took a long time to take off

Review:

I wasn't sure how well this would grow, as the seeds took a long time under the grow light to germinate, but eventually they did. I planted my seedlings in a container, and by the end of the summer the plants were big enough to begin to harvest some rosemary. I brought the container inside for the winter. At one point the plant seemed dry and dead, but after some TLC it came back with fresh shoots. It has now been over a year since I planted it from seedlings, and it is thriving.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Low germ; failure to thrive

Review:

Seed arrived stamped low germination - no mention of this on website before purchase. I eventually got two seeds to germinate (out of 50) but the seedlings never progressed past a few leaves under broad spectrum lights. Never have had problems with rosemary previously - either from seed or purchased plants.
