Rosemary has lumps

Zone Kiln Green | kevinbreetz added on December 17, 2013 | Answered

I have a small rosemary plant, but half of it died back during the summer, so I pruned back the dead bits and it seems to still be alive. Apart from that there are some small brown lumps coming out of the stalks. Don't know if this is normal, as it looks like the lumps are breaking through the stalks.

    These may be just buds that will develop into new branches. This would be normal. Try to gently wipe them away. If they do not wipe away, then this is what they are.

    If they do wipe away, then it might be scale. This article will help you with this problem.
