Judy, in your January 14th post you mentioned your rosemary blooming. How long does it take for a rosemary plant to bloom? How do you keep it happy in the winter? I bought mine this past spring from Lowe’s. It was in a 3″ pot. This winter it is just eking along, putting out rather leggy growth, but certainly not blooming. Do rosemaries need to get a certain age, or a certain size before they bloom? Is it the amount of light?

When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
