Our Rosemary Salem Liners are well-rooted starter plants that come ready to transplant into your final container. The herb commonly known as thyme is widely used for its aroma, flavor, and visual appeal in both culinary and ornamental applications. Grow thyme as a container product or in 4 inch pots for landscape use.

Growing Tips

For best results with Rosemary Salem, use a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N on well rooted plants. A pH between 5.8 and 6.2 is important for the healthiest plant color. In most cases, an additional supplement of iron is recommended in order to deepen the coloration of the foliage.


We recommend that you pinch Rosemary Salem 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container. Growing herbs at cooler temperatures will help to keep the plants short and bushy.


Space 4-inch, 6-inch, and gallon pots as needed to allow air flow and penetration of light between plants. Rosemary Salem can grow to a 24" spread. We do not recommend planting them in 1801 or other traditional market trays as they tend to get leggy and have the potential for fungus problems when planted too close together.

Height Control

Plant growth regulators are not recommended on herbs.


Whiteflies, aphids, and occasionally mealybugs are all insects to watch out for with Rosemary Salem.


Rosemary Salem is not prone to many diseases, but don't oversaturate the soil. If the plant sits in moist soil for an extended amount of time, you could end up with root rot, botrytis or a bacterial blight. Botrytis grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. To best fight root rot in herbs, look for an organic or garden-safe fungicide, like Neem Oil.

Planting Rosemary Salem Liners

  1. If you are planting 4" pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. We recommend at least 3 starters per pot for 6" and larger. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation of rooted cuttings. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
