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!
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.
