Moving rosemary indoors

Zone 4-5 (Colorado) | JF added on October 13, 2014 | Answered

To move my rosemary plant indoors, do I simply dig it up and put it into a pot with indoor potting soil after checking it over for pests? We've already had a couple of nighttime freezes here in Colorado and I've covered it with a large pot to protect it. I know I'll need to acclimate it gradually. Any other suggestions?? THANKS!

I think you're pretty well understanding the process. Make sure to take up as much root mass as possible, cut back some of the foliage, institute gradual light acclimatization, and cut back on water.
