How To Take Care Of Potted Rosemary
Ask the Expert:How to maintain a Rosemary plant.
I received a Rosemary plant,shaped and the size of a small Christmas tree. It was placed outdoors and the weather here has been in the low 20's at night. It is on the front porch and receives sun during the day, but I am afraid it will freeze.How can I preserve it against the elements.Would it survive inside. MY house is kept very warm and has some very sunny rooms. Margaret
Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply: Rosmary is a hardy plant outdoors through USDA Hardiness zone 7, when planted in the ground.Â Â Potted however extreme coldÂ - lower than 20 degrees F, especially with wind chills may harmÂ your plant.
RosemaryÂ is a fairly easy plant to maintainÂ indoors.Â Â First thing - If it is wrapped in foil or celophane, that needs to be removed soon, as these can trap water in the pot.Â It can stay on through the holidays, but be careful not to overwater the plant.
If repotting the rosemary, terra cottaÂ would be my choice of pottery.Â It prefers bright light, and a well drained soil,Â Â andÂ preferably not in direct path of heatingÂ vent.Â Â Keep the plant moistÂ but not oversaturated with water and fertilize regularly with a balanced water soluable fertilizer such as Peters or Miracle-Gro.
It may take a few weeks to get the watering situated as it will depend on how warm you keep your home,Â the best way is to try to water once a week and adjust if needed.Â Don't beÂ affriad to trim off sprigs forÂ roasted turkey or chicken.Â Once spring arrives place plant outdoors in full sun or part shade.
