Also question is, where does rosemary grow best?
Unlike most herbs that live for only one season, rosemary is an evergreen shrub in zone 8 and farther south. For that reason, you should choose a location where it can continue to grow for years to come. It thrives in a sunny, well-drained location where it will reach up to 3 feet tall and wide.
Also, how do you make rosemary grow bigger? Some folks like to cut the bottom out of the plastic pot and put the whole thing into a big clay one. Then you get the water retention of plastic with the look of clay. We advise planting them into a larger container or into the ground before midsummer to achieve optimum growth.
Secondly, how do you care for a rosemary plant outside?
Provide rosemary with well-drained soil, preferably a sandy soil and at least 6-8 hours of full sun. Rosemary plants thrive well in warm and humid environments and does not like extremely low temperatures (below 30 degrees Fahrenheit).
How do you maintain rosemary?
- Light. To keep rosemary happy, give it six to eight hours of full sunlight each day. When growing it indoors, place it in a south-facing window for bright light, but don't let it get too hot.
- Soil. Grow rosemary in sandy, well-draining soil.
- Water. Water rosemary plants when the soil is completely dry.
