Both I and hubby are avid lovers of gardening. We have a small garden in our backyard. Before we had kids there were lots of roses, flowers and veggies planted in our garden. Nowadays with two kids who always enjoy taking out the potted plant rather than planting them the amount of gardening has reduced. Still we plant some veggies every year, especially black beans and kidney beans. I also have a rosemary bush in my garden and wanted to transfer it to the potted plant for long time.
After researching a lot, I found a way of propagating rosemary from the sprig. I did try that method and was successful.
So I decided to share with you as it might be helpful for everybody. I didn’t prune the rosemary so it is more like a bush and nowadays it is drying up in the bottom as the heat is around 100 ⁰F for entire week.
Cut the rosemary sprig like this.
Then remove the leaves from the bottom part.
Make sure to remove the skin in the bottom part of sprig.
Leave them in bottle filled with water, if you want you can add some root enhancing liquid.
Keep it aside for few weeks. Change the water when it changes the color. Within a week or two you will be able to see the root.
Once you see strong single root transfer them into a pot.
Let it grow in the pot for some days before transferring it into the soil. Rosemary grows better in the ground just like any other plant.
Give it try you will succeed for sure. If you already grown rosemary from the sprig, please share your ideas and tips I would love to know.
