Herban Farming

WP_20151114_007

Did you know that you can propagate your own rosemary?  Pick a strong sturdy stem and cut at least 3-4 inches long and put it in a glass of water.  This will not work with a soft stem, it must be one of the woody ones.  Rosemary doesn’t last more than a few years in my garden so every fall I snip off four stems, put them in water and they are growing roots after 3 weeks.  I then plant them in small pots where they live out the winter in the garage near a window.  Be sure to keep watering them and they will be ready for spring planting!
