Plant of the Month Recipes – February – Rosemary

Would you believe us if we told you that Rosemary is part of the Mint family with other herbs such as oregano, thyme, basil and lavender. Rosemary is a fragrant culinary condiment that can be converted to oil or be dried and has many potential healthy benefits. It’s typically prepared as a whole dried herb and has a pungent taste which means a little goes a long way.

  • When to Plant: Rosemary does best in warm areas with fair humidity.
  • Zone: 7-10
  • Where: Give Rosemary room to grow as this plant grows into a shrub several feet in height and can be grown both inside and outside. It likes full sun with well-draining soil. It can be planted near beans, cabbage, carrots and sage.
  • Harvesting: It’s best to harvest Rosemary when the shrub has young stems and leaves for the freshest taste
  • Fun Fact: Rosemary has been used to kill germs/disinfect; has thought to bring luck to newlyweds; and the Ancient Greeks believed it to be a memory aid.
