Rosmarinus Officinalis or Rosemary is an important culinary herb with aromatic needle-like leaves used to flavor chicken, pork, lamb and many other dishes. Rosemary can be grown by seed sowing. Place rosemary seeds on top of the planting medium about one-half inch apart and press lightly but do not cover with soil, it will take a long time to germinate and the seedlings are slow to grow.
Planting & Care
Sunlight: Rosmarinus Officinalis needs lots of direct sunlight to thrive. The plant will do best somewhere that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of sun every day.
Soil: grows in sandy and rocky soil, so the seeds will do better in a loose and light potting mix that doesn’t contain soil.
Water: Average water needs. Water on a regular schedule, but do not overwater. Allow soil to go dry between waterings, then soak thoroughly.
Temperature: The ideal temperature for germinating rosemary is between 70 and 80 °F
Fertilizer: A basic 5-10-5 fertilizer applied in the spring and perhaps a foliar spray midseason will keep the plants healthy and happy.
