Rosemary flourishes best in Grow Zones 7-10, with Zone 6 commonly reporting successful cultivation. Various types of rosemary grow differently, pending on climate conditions.
Like potatoes, rosemary can prosper potted in large containers. However, planters, raised beds, and freely growing in the garden, are viable, provided you have good drainage and direct sunlight.
Overwatering rosemary causes root rot and will kill your plant pretty quickly. So it’s essential to wet the plant generously, allow the excess to drain from the pot’s base, and wait to water again until the soil is dry.
Using sand with well-drained soil, organic material, and regular dirt mix is ideal for optimal drainage. Additionally, avoid using potting mix because root rot is common under those circumstances for rosemary.
