Q.brown rosemary

Zone orlando, Florida | phzilly added on November 3, 2014 | Answered

I have Rosemary planted in a strawberry pot that has recently gone without water for a few weeks. While the first few inches is green, the bottom portion of each stem has turned brown. Should I cut it way back and give it a chance to come back?

You can cut it back, but maybe the best thing would be to cut only part of the stems, thus leaving some leaves to produce energy for the roots to produce new leaves. When those new leaves are robust, then you can cut back the older stems.
