Rosemary is an indispensable plant in our kitchens. It is not only an important ingredient of a variety of typical preparations, but also very rich in therapeutic properties and health benefits. This wonderful aromatic plant can be grown at home in ordinary pots. Very simple tricks are enough to have a lush and very fragrant rosemary plant, and we will list them just below.

Rosemary is a very hardy plant that can withstand different climates. It is grown from seeds or cuttings. Get cuttings about 3 inches long, preferably cut in early summer. Choose healthy, green pieces, preferably from a flowering plant. Fill a pot with all-purpose potting soil but add some rocks to improve drainage. Good drainage that prevents waterlogging is very important with rosemary. Place the rosemary pot in a well-lit area throughout the day. It can be placed both indoors and outdoors: It is a plant that adapts easily to all contexts, but it is important that it receives the right amount of light.

Water the rosemary only when its soil is completely dry. During the warmer months you can increase the frequency of watering, but it is important to avoid standing water, which can cause root rot. The plant needs a few months to grow and become lush. To use it, simply cut some branches about 7-8 inches long, starting at the tips of the stems, and make sure some needles remain on the plant at the base of the branch.
