Rosemary Cuttings

The Rosemary bush planted in the 4×4 garden box grew wonderful last year.  It also overwintered well.  The box is on the sunny south side of the house so I supposed that helped.

I read how to propagate Rosemary and thought it was worth a try.   My daughter cut  some branches that looked like they had been growing recently.   Then I stripped the bottom leaves off the stem and dipped it in root growth hormone powder.

Set them in small pots and put a plastic sandwich bag over it. They are now sitting in a sunny window sill.  There was a few branches left so I stuck them in a small cell trick thingy with no  plastic. We will see how these compare.
