Rosemary has many uses; you can cook with the leaves, or make potpourri. I like to cut springs of rosemary for my garden wreaths, herb and flower arrangements and for my natural rosemary soap. The aromatic rosemary has an invigorating fragrance that appeals to my senses.
If we were having friends over to relax on the patio the fragrant rosemary would perfume the air. All of my guests love the scent of the rosemary and many would heighten the flavor of their meat or vegetables by adding rosemary leaves. You should grow rosemary especially if you enjoy cooking but also if you enjoy decorating your home with herbs. there are also health benefits for growing rosemary, here are a few;
If planting in a container, fill the soil up to one inch below the top. By allowing this inch you will aid in hydrating the plant. The water will not spill over the rim but instead will seep into the soil.
Maintain your rosemary by applying organic mulch around the plant and watering it one inch per week.
Rosemary is hardy to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Bring rosemary indoors if your weather is extremely cold. In early spring fertilize rosemary with compost, but a hefty handful around the plants stem. The nutrients from the compost will keep your rosemary healthy.
