This is a new offering. It is for a 4" square pot of 'Tuscan Blue' Rosemary. Rosemary has many uses. Rosemary Tea is very good for you and simple to make. I use Rosemary often for facial steams. It is also great for herbal bath teas. Of course, the most common use of rosemary is culinary. Roasted chicken with garlic cloves and herb sprigs tucked inside is amazing!
“Tuscan Blue” rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis “Tuscan Blue”) grows upright to between 2 and 4 feet tall, creating a centerpiece in the bed. This variety also features an abundance of small purple flowers in spring and summer and gray-green foliage year-round. “Tuscan Blue” rosemary thrives in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 8 through 10 when grown with proper maintenance.
Plant rosemary in a well-drained garden bed with full-sun exposure so the plant receives six to eight hours of sunlight daily. Space new plants about 24 inches apart in all directions.
Water “Tuscan Blue” rosemary only when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil feels almost completely dry. Soak the bed deeply with about 1 inch of water so the top 6 inches of the soil feels moist.
Sprinkle a general-purpose fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10 blend, around each rosemary plant in spring. Spread the fertilizer on top of the soil 6 inches away from the base of the plants and scratch it into the top 1 to 2 inches of soil. Water immediately after application.
Cut back the rosemary plant immediately after it flowers in spring. Shear it back by up to a third of its height and width, shaping it lightly so it remains mounded and full. Cut out any dead or damaged sprigs.
Spread 2 inches of mulch around the plants in fall, pulling the mulch back slightly so it doesn't rest against the base of the rosemary. Replenish the mulch each year so it can provide winter protection against light freezes.
