Bigger Rosemary





















Remember that rosemary my friend gave me? Well it has grown quite large and is very happy in my garden. One year later and it has grown into a shrub. How's that for a happy plant. With that in mind I moved the other rosemary to the other side of the front walk. A better location for this type of plant. It gets lots of sun but the clay soil seems to be more of a match for this plant.



















Here is the other rosemary I hope will be quite happy in its new location. It's little. So by next summer I hope it too makes a major burst of growth to be as large as the one above. Not that I have any idea what to do with so much rosemary, really, I have no plans, but they do look quite nice. I'll gladly send guests home with a clipping or two.

Isn't it the hardiest rosemary ever?! I'm thrilled it's working out for you. I have an established plant potted indoors that is very hardy that you could have too. It would love to have a spot outside I am sure.

I'd love to adopt the potted rosemary, it's one of my favorites.
