Re: First aid for rosemary plant

Thanks, Lady A. I will try the infusion.

If anything I think the new soil may hold the water too long - rosemary likes it fairly dry. I've always watered it from the top, and it's done fine, but maybe with the new soil it would prefer being watered from the bottom.

Re: First aid for rosemary plant

I've never thought of fermented nettle infusion - can you tell me how to make that?

It's in new very rich soil, because I had to repot it, and I worried about the soil being too rich.

Re: First aid for rosemary plant

Thanks for asking - it's hanging in, fewer dead leaves, but still kind of struggling. I did not prune it back as severely as I thought of doing, but have been cutting off obvious dead twigs.

First aid for rosemary plant

I have just started my annual outdoor container garden today, which is exciting! I have a rosemary plant which lives indoors in the winter, and I brought it out for the first time today, and also repotted it. It is several years old and has not done very well this winter, so I'm looking for advice t...

Re: Earbuds can create a havoc!

I read something about that quite recently in the mainstream press - can't remember where. Thanks!

Re: Spring Weed Walk

On the subject of overwintering thyme and rosemary, I just have a container garden so I bring them inside. They are the only two of the herbs I grow that have made it through the winter, even inside, on a consistent basis. Rosemary doesn't mind my cold bedroom window, but I have had success with the...

Re: A Plant At A Time Series- from the Archives

What a great story about the ants, Lady A! :lol: I'm thinking of making a bunch of herbal honeys - infusing the herb in the straight honey - rather than the way I've made syrups in the past. I have a jar of Angelica honey that is more liquid than the honey by itself, and which has already lasted sev...

Re: Spring Weed Walk

Wow, Lady A! Spring greens already? We still can't see the ground for snow! All I'm harvesting is thyme and rosemary from my windowsill plants - but I love thyme and rosemary.

Re: adaptogens

It's so strange to read about "too many chanterelles"! I grew up with parents who gathered mushrooms (for food as opposed to medicinal value), and chanterelles were everybody's favourite, but there were never enough of them and the season was short. They were the only ones I ever got confi...
