Rosemary Seeds - Rosmarinus Officinalis - Flavourful, Aromatic & Perennial
Quantity: 50 Seeds
Rosemary, aka Rosmarinus Officinalis, is a tried and true culinary herb in the mint family Lamiaceae. It originates from Southern Europe and Western Asia, and is perennial down to zone 6. The leaves are extremely fragrant and pungent in flavour. It's used in a wide variety of dishes, but their flavour truly shines when used with soup, chicken, fish, vegetables, and salad dressings. These shrubs are vigorous growers, and once established, will produce an abundance of herb for many years to come.
All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

It's best to start Rosemary seeds 4-6 weeks before the last frost. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds on the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Once germinated, and the first two true leaves have formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher, which is around mid-may for us at the farm. Rosemary does best when grown in full sun.
