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.

You spliced that plant into another one, that’s pretty cool
