Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb. One of my favorite plants is that of rosemary. Rosemary should be in probably every garden. If you want to have a beautiful plant that tends to creep all over, this is the creeping or prostrate rosemary. So it's a little bit of a, well, spreader, if you will. You can use it sometimes in, well, I've seen it used in rock gardens. I have seen it used in areas where you wanted something to kind of used as a ground cover. Remember that you probably want to fertilize it either with a time released fertilizer when you first put it in the ground. Or you are going to probably give it a shot with a liquid plant food about every three to four week maybe at about half strength. You don't need to over fertilize but on the other hand, you don't want to forget it either for the entire season. Make sure it get a good supply of water. It doesn't need to be wet but it needs a good watering probably ever second or third day depending on the soil type. Most of the time you will notice it is in a good peat pearl like combination. So it's got good drainage. That's probably more important for this plant than many other herbs. Many of your herbs need to be a little bit on the dry side. Rosemary can be a great addition to many of your dishes. For on gardening, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
