Blue flowers bloom in spring. Rosemary is primarily grown for its foliage.
Pinch once, 5-10 days after transplanting.
Space 4-inch containers as needed to allow airflow and penetration of light between plants. We do not recommend planting rooted plugs in 1801 or other traditional market trays as they tend to get leggy and can develop fungus when they have insufficient space.
We do not recommend using chemical growth regulators on herbs or organic plants.
You may see spider mites or mealybugs. Rosemary is generally pest resistant.
Rosemary Hishtil Perigord isn't disease prone but avoid oversaturating the soil. If the plant sits in moist soil at length, you could end up with root rot or botrytis. Botrytis grey rot tends to occur in wet or humid conditions. Take these steps to prevent botrytis: water in the morning and allow the plant to dry out between waterings; provide good airflow in your greenhouse; space plants so the sun can penetrate to the soil level. To best fight root rot in herbs, use an organic or garden-safe fungicide, like Neem Oil.
