Rosemarinus Officinalis - 10 seeds
Rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis), a prized culinary herb from the Mediterranean region, makes an attractive and fragrant garden or landscape plant. Rosemary has numerous cultivars, from low-growing varieties to large shrubs. The aromatic evergreen grows as a perennial in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 10, depending on the cultivar. In cooler zones it grows as an annual or a houseplant. Like many herbs, rosemary has few special requirements once established. Germinating rosemary seeds, however, takes patience and special care.
To give rosemary seeds their best chance at thriving, it's best to start growing rosemary indoors. Since rosemary seeds are slow to germinate and grow, start them three to six months prior to growing season.
Rosemary requires a well-draining, loamy soil for planting and growing. A well-draining soil will help ward off any potential overwatering, though you should still be wary of watering too much and making the soil soggy. Your herb won’t like sitting in water, as it can cause damage to the roots and potentially kill the plant.
