Propagating Rosemary

Rosemary, hardy as it can be, takes time to establish.  Tiny rosemary plants typically don’t do well under my watch.  Last fall I bought a bushy hardy mature bush, and it’s thriving!  So to save a little money, I am attempting to propagate it.  Take a stem, one that is still soft and not woody, and cut about two inches from the plant.

Remove leaves from the bottom to about 2/3 of the way up.  Make sure no leaves are submerged in water.  Save for dinner.

Et voila!  Place your Rosemary in a glass of water and leave in a sunny spot.  You can apply growth hormone, or wait a bit longer.  I opted for the latter.  Wait a few weeks and a root system will begin to form.  Soon you can transplant your little plant into a pot.
