Rosmarinus officinalis, commonly known as Rosemary, is a fragrant and versatile herb. With its needle-like leaves, enchanting aroma, and resilience, Rosemary has a rich history, dating back to ancient civilizations. It was considered a symbol of remembrance and was often used in ceremonies, weddings, and funerals. The name "Rosemary" is derived from the Latin words "ros" (dew) and "marinus" (sea), reflecting its natural habitat along the Mediterranean coast.

Whether you're using it to add flavor to your culinary creations, exploring its medicinal properties, or simply enjoying its ornamental beauty, Rosemary is a cherished herb that continues to grace our gardens and kitchens with its delightful presence.

Care Tips for Rosemary

Sunlight

Rosemary thrives in full sun, so ensure it receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily. If you're growing it indoors, place it near a south or west-facing window to maximize sunlight exposure.

Well-Draining Soil

Plant Rosemary in well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. A mix of potting soil and sand or perlite can help improve drainage. Good drainage is crucial to prevent root rot.

Watering

Allow the soil to dry out between watering. Overwatering can lead to root rot, which is a common issue with Rosemary. Water your plant thoroughly, but less frequently. When the top inch of soil is dry, it's time to water.

Container Size

If you're growing Rosemary in a container, choose a pot with drainage holes that is slightly larger than the root ball. This allows room for growth while preventing waterlogged soil.

Pruning and Maintenance

Regular pruning helps maintain the shape and size of your Rosemary plant. It also encourages bushier growth and stimulates new leaf production. Prune away dead or woody branches as needed.

Fertilization

Rosemary is not a heavy feeder, so avoid excessive fertilization. In the growing season (spring and summer), you can apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer at half-strength every 4-6 weeks.
