At A Glance: Rosemary


  1. What is the secret to getting rosemary to grow so big and full? The giant one I. The blue box container is amazing!

    • Deborah Silver says

      Dear Erin, that rosemary is 25 years old. Every winter, it goes to the greenhouse for a little R and R-from a professional grower. They are tough to keep-they are so prone to powdery mildew, and they need spot on watering. Deborah

  2. I’m in Kansas now, enjoying the challenges (and how!) of gardening in the Plains, but now and then I long for California and my seven-foot-tall hedges of rosemary. “Hill’s Hardy” can make it in-ground through a Kansas winter (zone 5), but only if specific conditions are met, and even then not reliably.
