Rosemary plants seem to be forever. Their famous silvery-green foliage looks almost like spruce, but crush a few leaves, and there it is--that delightful scent of rosemary, so loved in a whole array of recipes. Plant it once, and you have it forever.
When and Where to Plant: Select sunny sheltered location with
well-drained soil and sow seeds as soon as soil can be worked.
Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food. For earlier harvest,
start seeds indoors. Firm soil over seeds.
Care: Pinch tips to encourage branching.
Harvesting: Flavor is best before plant blooms. Pick leaves and
sprigs as needed and use fresh, or dry. Leaves may be frozen.
