Planting rosemary in texas
Planting and Care. Herbs may be grown from seed or transplant. Annual herbs, such as basil, get a quicker start and perform more reliably using transplants. Cilantro and dill grow well either from seeds or transplants. Perennial herbs, including thyme, sage and rosemary do best as transplanted seedlings. Pruning woody lavender, rosemary, sage, or thyme nearly always kills the plant. Selections Basil (annual): Choose among the 64 species according to mature height, leaf type (smooth or curly, small or large), leaf and flower color, and desired scent/flavor, such as sweet, citrus, or spicy. Rosemary plants are usually propagated by cuttings, as it can be tricky getting evergreen rosemary seeds to germinate. Successfully growing rosemary plants from seeds comes only when the seeds are very fresh and when planted in optimum growing conditions. Start new rosemary plants with cuttings from existing evergreen plants.
