Rosemary Arp ships in 3.5 inch containers
Rosemary Arp | Rosmarinus officinalis Arp is one of the most fragrant of all herbs! The Arp Rosemary has been introduced as an improved rosemary plant variety which shows better winter hardiness.
The Rosemary Arp tolerates a wide range of growing conditions. It grows best in soil which is light and well-drained. Water thoroughly when soil is dry. Hardy to 18 degrees. This rosemary variety rows to a height of 3 - 4 feet, space 2 - 3 feet apart.
Ships in 4 inch pots. This is just the right size for transplanting.
A Mediterranean herb, Rosemary is now widely cultivated outside of Europe. Because it is winter hardy only to about 20°F, rosemary is generally only grown as a potted plant in Wisconsin. Plants do best in bright light to full sun in well-drained soil. The soil should be kept moist, but good drainage is nessary.
Fertilize rosemary plants lightly as excess fertilizer reduces flowering and fragrance. Good air circulation is important to prevent foliar disease. Potted plants can be moved outside to a sunny location during the summer, but should be brought inside before first frost. There are two opinions on how to keep your rosemary plant outside in the summer. One is to keep the plant in a pot and plant it, pot and all, in the garden with the rim below the soil line. This prevents damaging the roots when you bring it in. But another option is to plant it outside without the pot, digging it up about 2-3 weeks before bringing it inside and put it in the pot until it's time to bring it inside.
