Rosemary prefers sunshine but my understanding for zone 7 would be to plant in a pot and you could move indoors during colder weather.
Yes Rosemary will grow in planter , place my 6 hrs. in sun, then bring it in at night. I live in the new England. This the first time have rosemary , love cooking with it. The smell is amazing !
NickE, The variety we offer is "Arp".
It is Rosmarinus officinalis, the kind you use in cooking.
If take the rosemary leaves and place then around your kitchen and it will keep the bugs away and mice
If the plant gets enough sun, it will grow to about 3 feet high and 2 to 3 feet wide over time. You can prune it back occasionally to keep it full looking.
Yes but you should call your local store and ask if they are in stock .
Rosemary likes about 6 hours of full sun to be hardy. If you have a sun room or a bright window sill, it would probably work.
Tom Hughes (Bonnie Plants Help Desk) Apr 17, 1:30 PM CDT Good Afternoon Melanie: Your email was forwarded to us, here, at Bonnie Plants Customer Service. I can share with you that Bonnie Plants does not utilize any form of systemic neonicotinoid pesticides/insecticides (neonicotinoids class includes; acetamiprid, clothianidin, imidacloprid, nitenpyram, nithiazine, thiacloprid, dinotefuran and thiamethoxam) in the nationwide, greenhouse production of transplants. Neonicotinoids are not contained in any seed, soil nor are they utilized in any stage of the growing process. In 2015, Home Depot required all live plant vendors to label plants with stick tags that indicate plants were grown using neonics, if neonics were utilized in the growing process (see press release here: http://www.environmentalleader.com/2014/07/01/home-depot-to-require-neonicotinoids-labeling/) As we do not use neonics you will see no such labeling on Bonnie Plants at Home Depot stores, nationwide. Additionally, Lowes (April 9, 2015) announced they will “stop selling a pesticide that is suspected of killing honeybee populations that are necessary for pollinating crops, completely phasing it out of products and plants by the spring of 2019” See full report here: http://theweek.com/speedreads/548956/lowes-stop-selling-pesticide-that-harms-honeybees To date, other retailers have not required live good vendor labeling of neonics use, however, you can be assured, Bonnie Plants, available at any/all retailers we supply, nationwide, does not utilize any neonics.
