Q.Rosemary Plant Turning Brown

Anonymous added on March 5, 2011 | Answered

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?

It is most likely overwatering. Rosemary plants like to be in dry soil. This article has more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/rosemary/watering-rosemary.htm
