The Mediterranean has produced many useful plants, and rosemary is one of the most popular herbs from the region. It is revered for its culinary and medicinal uses. Rosemary leaves are used for flavoring meat and vegetable dishes, while their oil is valued in aromatherapy and natural medicine. This adaptable herb can successfully grow as a perennial in USDA hardiness zones 6 to 13, thriving in conditions that mimic its original coastal habitat. Tolerance to poor soil and drought makes rosemary a resilient option for any garden setting.


Start rosemary seeds indoors 10-12 weeks before the danger of frost has passed. Sow directly in the garden in warmer climates. Plant the seeds just beneath the surface of the soil. Keep them moist until germination starts - up to three weeks or sometimes longer. Rosemary sprouting requires patience and maintaining consistent conditions to start successfully. Once the seedlings are large enough, transplant them to a sunny spot in the garden. Rosemary spacing should be 2 to 3 feet apart because the mature plants will space out significantly over time.


Rosemary plants prefer to be kept on the dry side. Water them only when the soil is completely dry. Remember, this is a plant coming from a warm and dry climate. Overwatering often leads to root rot. The soil should also be well-aerated. Pruning the plants regularly promotes bushy growth. Rosemary is mostly pest-resistant, adding to its reputation of low maintenance.

Growing a practical, flavorful herb is possible with Survival Garden Seeds' rosemary seeds. While it may take some time to start growing, following simple guidelines will give you a resilient herb for years and years to come.
