Little rosemary plants popped up in a week

by KT

I read that trying to grow rosemary from seed is difficult and that the germination rate is low. I am starting my seeds in ball jars and the germination rate for everything has been great. I read that the best way to start rosemary is to plant, cover with a small amount of soil, dampen and cover with plastic wrap until the seeds germinate. Once they have popped up take the plastic wrap off. I planted 6 seeds on Feb.4 and by Feb 11 all 6 were sprouting! I live outside Phoenix and happen to have an area in my bathroom that is a great place for growing things. We'll see how quickly they grow. I have had excellent success with most of the seeds I've purchased from David's Garden Seeds. Some I'm still waiting for little sprouts!

Hi KT!
Thank you for choosing David's Garden Seeds®. The trick to planting any seed is to bury it no deeper than 1/4 inch and the seed will then have enough energy to break the ground and grow. Glad you are having success. Thank you for the kind words.
