Rosemary Cuttings

I want to have a row of rosemary in the garden, all ready have one plant but quite young and already used for cooking so didn't want to take a lot of cuttings from it.

When I was in Lidl a couple of weeks ago they were selling bags of rosemary stems 2 for £1 so I bought 2 and got 20 cuttings from them, ( the leaves I pulled off to expose the stem I used under the lamb ) I have looked this morning and all 20 have rooted !!!, 20 plants (OK small but they will grow quickly ) for £1 !!

Re: Rosemary Cuttings

It was a great score Earthmum! Congratulations!

User2014, she grew them from the stalks, cuttings, a great thing to do, (in fact I have never grown rosemary any other way!).

user2014 , its not a sad story because she used the stalks of rosemary that she bought to grow, by splittling up what she bought , removing the bottom leaves and planting them. in many countries this is called 'cuttings' . 

she bought 2 bunches of rosemary stalks from the supermarket and because she split them up like this she now has 20 little plants because they have all made roots and started to grow.

I think this was a great idea and I think I might try it too .

Re: Rosemary Cuttings

I grow rosemary from cuttings, but I like picking it off the bush myself because I really love deep blue flowers, and I grabbed a bit off the most glorious bush! That means I now have a big bush with glorious blue flowers and give people cuttings from it!

Re: Rosemary Cuttings

all my rosemary plants stem from the original one dating back to 1968 and lately I plant a little piece every time I crop some, there are so many types of rosemary but I like the color of mine's flowers ..... is this all a correct english tonight??? sorry forgive me

Re: Rosemary Cuttings

I have to admit that if I pass a rosemary bush I often pull a little piece off and stick it in another garden or in my own . I think I've planted quite a few rosemary bushes into other places over the years !
