Potting Up Rosemary

Rosemary is a ornamental plant as well has a culinary herb. It is not cold-hardy here in Iowa so I will need to bring indoors or take cuttings. I found a helpful post about growing Rosemary on The Spruce. I found ‘Tuscan Blue’ at Mulhalls a few weeks ago and planted it up with some Osmocote smart release plant fertilizer. IMG_9305IMG_9306IMG_9307IMG_9308IMG_9309IMG_9310

The collection of herb (gardening & cooking) books is continually growing.

Herbs de Provence
Dry or fresh, use for braised meat, tomato dishes and root vegetables.

3 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp dried marjoram
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp dried savory
1 tsp dried lavender flowers

Crumble or grand the herbs and store in an airtight jar for 2-3 months.
