I buy a beautiful indoor rosemary tree every holiday, but they always seem to die in my hands. I live in an apartment with a large balcony window, east-facing, so I don’t get a lot of sun. I try not to water too much and want to repot to a new pot, but everyday the poor plant gets more dry. Is there any chance of saving it before it’s too late?
The small rosemary tree that I bought in December is dying off. It was in a tiny plastic pot, so I repotted it in a nice terracotta pot. I noticed a growth on the stems and branches resembling little brown knobby bits. Do I need to spray it with something?
My rosemary topiaries that are in pots on the front porch of my home in southern Dallas County were actually beginning to bloom, when suddenly these brown areas began to appear. These areas in question are not dry and brittle, yet they continue to grow in size. Do you know what could be causing this?
I have several ‘bushes’ of rosemary in several gardens. The plants have become very bushy over the last few years. I really like the plant in the different beds. How can I cut it back without killing it? How far should I cut it back?
I also have a very large bush of lavender. Can I cut it back? If so, how far back?
I have rosemary at my new house that the previous owner put in, and right now there are hundreds of bees. I have two boys (ages 3 and 6) and they wont go outside! It is in a “U-shape” and takes up the whole ground cover area. I would like to get rid of the bush completely but it is so viney. Is there anything I can put on the plant to kill it, and how should I remove the shrub?
We were given a rosemary plant about 9 inches tall in a pot. One side has turned brown and is dead-looking, while the rest of the plant looks fine and healthy. We keep it indoors (New Hampshire winter) in a window and water it only when the soil seems dry. What is a likely cause of the dying, and what can we do about it?
Would dead, black Rosemary leaves be suitable as a soil improver on a flower border?
