Rosemary

Rosmarinus officinalis

Rosemary is an aromatic evergreen shrub with needle-like leaves and small blue flowers. It is widely known for its culinary uses, as well as its ornamental value in gardens. Rosemary is native to the Mediterranean region and thrives in sunny, well-drained soils.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil.
  2. Sow seeds indoors in early spring or directly outdoors after the last frost.
  3. Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep in soil, spacing them 6-12 inches apart.
  4. Keep soil consistently moist until seeds germinate, usually within 14-21 days.
  5. Once seedlings have developed several sets of true leaves, thin them to the strongest plants.
  6. Transplant seedlings outdoors once they are 6-8 inches tall, ensuring they have enough space to grow.
  7. Water plants regularly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
  8. Prune rosemary regularly to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth.

Harvesting:

  • Begin harvesting rosemary leaves once the plant is well-established, typically after 3-4 months.
  • Snip sprigs from the plant as needed, avoiding excessive pruning.
  • For best flavor, harvest rosemary in the morning when the oils are most concentrated.

Culinary Uses:

  • Rosemary is a versatile herb used to flavor a variety of dishes, including meats, vegetables, bread, and soups.
  • It pairs well with roasted lamb, chicken, potatoes, and tomatoes.
  • Fresh or dried rosemary can be used in cooking, with fresh leaves offering the strongest flavor.

Packet Contents:

  • Each packet contains approximately 40+/- seeds per packet.

Storage:

  • Store seeds in a cool, dry place until ready to plant.
  • Keep seeds away from direct sunlight and moisture to maintain viability.
