Needing a Trim

November 27th, 2017

I have had a potted rosemary in the house for years, this particular plant is probably 5 years old. I keep meaning to plant it in the soil during the summer, I always seem to forget. Instead it seems happy on the back porch during the summer.

When I brought it in last week I noticed it was getting a bit unruly! I’m amazed that it’s so large since I frequently cut branches for cooking. When I prune it this time, I’ll definitely be taking cutting to have another plant or two for myself and perhaps a few for gifting. With this, I have quite a collection of indoor herbs, more about the rest tomorrow.

Do you have any herbs as houseplants? Which is your favorite?
