Bringing Your Rosemary Plant Indoors

 

 

I’ve had success bringing a rosemary plant indoors by transplanting it from the garden into a pot using container soil. When transplanting it into a pot, be careful not to damage the roots and make sure that the pot is large enough to accommodate the roots which have probably grown quite a bit over the summer.  

 

Don’t bring your rosemary plant inside right away. You have to slowly introduce it to more and more shade each day over a period of a few weeks. Once the plant has been acclimatized sufficiently, check the plant for pests. I spray the leaves with soapy water before bringing the plant in just in case pests plan on hitching a ride inside.  

 

Place your rosemary plant in a sunny spot indoors. You also want to make sure it’s in a location that gets a good amount of air circulation. Lastly, remember that in the wintertime, your rosemary does not need to be watered very often at all. I watered my plant two times during the whole winter and occasionally misted the leaves and it thrived.
