From Old to New

What better way to spend a dull, gray morning than planning this years changes to the garden. I love Rosemary and cook with it all year long. This winter was hard on one of my bushes and it is now on the compost heap. Trying something new; taking root cuttings from my other bush and starting to root them. Not tried Rosemary before, supposedly I can do the same with lavender.

Started with cuttings from my older bush.

Pulled off the leaves from the bottom of the stems and saved them on a paper towel to dry.

Coated each stem with a rooting hormone.

Inserted them into the jars on the kitchen window sill.  Recommend changing the water once a week in order to prevent root rot.

Best part is that my whole kitchen smells like fresh rosemary.

Keep you posted as to how his works

Till Later
