Fussy Germinators

We had a cool spring and the seeds were planted in May directly outdoors. They lived up to their reputation of picky germination. Out of a packet, 5 plants. But once our Southern heat came along - boom - growth took off. We have taken sprigs for cooking use! A challenge to start, but that is a great part of gardening!

Rosemary seeds

Shopping experience was fine. Unfortunately not a single seed germinated.

I love Rosemary!

Pinetree gardens is awesome! They replaced the rosemary seed I purchased in the spring that didn’t germinate!

Got some to sprout

Germination rate was about 30% but from what I have read, that’s about expected for rosemary. Looks good!

Rosemary flourishes

I had great luck with getting my Rosemary to germinate an do well for me. I was even able to winter it over.
