Description: Rosemary is a woody shrub with evergreen leaves that are much ramified and occasionally squat and can reach 2 meters in height.
Type of soil: Rosemary, like many other aromatic plants, is not a plant that requires much care. It grows on all types of soils, preferably arid, dry, somewhat sandy and permeable, adapting very well to poor soils. It grows in littoral and low mountain areas.
Irrigation: Irrigation has to be scarce or nil depending on the zones, in rainy areas or humid climates we should not irrigate the plant, anything more than in a time of drought.
Climate: Its natural climate is the Mediterranean climate, it grows on the coast, but it adapts well to climates that are not very extreme, for example to temperate, or warm-temperate, also to dry climates.
Reproduction: By seeds, they are sown in spring in the nursery. But the fastest and safest means is the reproduction by cuttings. In March branches of about 15 cm of a plant of at least two years are cut and buried at half height. The rooting takes about two months and can be transplanted in autumn or the following spring.
Care and Diseases: The main enemy of the Rosemary is the fungi, which develop when the plant is very humid and in places with little ventilation. If the rosemary is planting outside it is important that the soil has a good drainage otherwise the water accumulates can cause the plant to die by excess water.
Pruning can be done at the end of February, to prepare it for spring.
