When growing rosemary plants, provide them with well-drained, sandy soil and at least six to eight hours of sunlight. These plants thrive in warm, humid environments and cannot take extremely cold temperatures.
It is often better when growing rosemary plants to put them in containers, which can be placed in the ground and easily moved indoors during winter.
Rosemary prefers to remain somewhat on the dry side; therefore, terra cotta pots are a good choice when selecting suitable containers. Thoroughly water rosemary plants when the soil is dry to the touch but allow the plants to dry out between watering intervals.
Even indoors, rosemary plants will require lots of light, at least for six hours, so place the plant in a suitable location free of drafts.
Rosemary is easiest to grow from a cutting, rather than planting seeds.
