Greetings everybody.

I bought 2 little Rosemary plants and i need to re-pot them. Is there any trick that I should know about Rosemary before I replant these?

Can you really kill a rosemary? They need sun and dryish soil.

Well lets just say that i would like to keep from killing it but on the other hand I was planning on eating it too. But I may have a chance on getting these little guys through the winter after all because I can create dry and sunny conditions for them.

Thanks Angelika!

hau Kittum, about the only thing to concern yourself with when repotting rosemary is to make sure the pot is at least twice the size of the current pot, that will give the roots enough room for the plant to grow and spread a little. We plant ours in the ground, for a hard winter area you would find a plant blanket good to have for putting over the bush. A mulching about 4" deep protects the roots. In New York I kept one alive by mulching and then placing a large garbage bad over the bush, filled that with leaves and tied it closed with a twist tie. The bush did very well and really took off the next spring when I released it from the "wrappings".

I bet I can do that. I never knew how good rosemary was until my wife got into using it - well - in lots of stuff. I just got to have it now.

Issue resolved. Thanks Angelika and Bryant.
 
That feels good. Thanks. Here's a tiny ad:
