How to propagate rosemary

The subshrub rosemary, also called Salvia rosmarinus or Rosmarinus officinalis, can

best be propagated with the help of rosemary cuttings

.

Since you should regularly shape your rosemary plant by cutting it, propagation by cuttings is not a problem. Alternatively, you could also propagate rosemary by sowing, but this is not quite as easy and far less promising than the cuttings method.

Step-by-step instructions on how to easily propagate rosemary from cuttings

  • Use

    garden shears

    to cut off shoots about ten centimeters long from the mother plant.

    It is best to position the pruning shears just above the woody parts of the rosemary so that the rosemary cuttings are hard enough and do not threaten to rot.

    Because cuttings that are too soft do not form roots and die.

  • Then you should remove the bottom leaves of the cuttings and trim the cutting point with a

    sharp knife

    , leaving a length of about six to eight centimeters.

  • The prepared cuttings should be planted in the soil up to the base of the leaves without the soil covering the leaves.

    Use

    soil that is as poor in nutrients as possible for sowing or herbs

    so that the rosemary cuttings can develop many roots and a large, vigorous plant can grow back.

    Gently press the cuttings and water them a little.

  • For example, make

    a transparent cover out of

    cling film .

    With small, thin

    wooden sticks

    you can build a house for your rosemary cultivation.

  • The soil should be kept slightly moist.

    Remember to regularly lift the rosemary house, which should be in a bright location - but not in the blazing sun - to air it.

    After about

    four to six weeks

    , when the rosemary cuttings have sprouted and are well rooted, the cling film house can be removed.

  • Since rosemary plants should

    only be planted in the garden after two to three years

    , repot the young plant and leave it protected, for example on the windowsill.

    When is the best time to propagate rosemary?

    If you decide to use the

    sowing method

    , the seeds of the rosemary herbs must be sown

    in mid-March at temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius

    .

    Only then will the rosemary seeds germinate and only after at least four weeks of germination.

    In addition, the seeds of rosemary usually sprout very irregularly.

    If you have decided to propagate rosemary with the help of

    rosemary cuttings

    , the best time is in

    early summer

    .

    After the flowering period, you should trim your rosemary bush anyway, so that this time is ideal for propagating rosemary with cuttings.
