Judy, do you keep your rosemary in a pot throughout the summer, or do you plant it in the ground and dig it up for winter? Either way, when do you start hardening it off? How do you go about it, i.e., how long do you put it out the first day, the second, and so on, and where, shade, sun, etc., and how many days do you stretch the process out over? I usuallly wait till May to start bringing it outside, but it is almost 80 today, although, of course, we are to have a “wintry mix” by Thursday, but it did make me wonder what your schedule is. And I finally figured out where in the house my rosemary needs to be in order to bloom . . . so I have several months to figure out where my husband’s gigantic jade plants are going to go!
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
