Six weeks after starting this little project, it’s finally starting to come to a conclusion! I potted the first cutting last week, and the last cutting has started to root! It’s been a great passive project to work on during all the business of spring. If you haven’t started your own rosemary cuttings, I’d highly recommend it! It’s been super easy and hands-off. I’ll definitely be doing this again. These would make great gifts, they just require a lot of forethought…six weeks of forethought, actually. So watch out friends and family! You may or may not be gifted rosemary a lot from now on!
Ok, onto what you’re really here for, the photos. Just what did those roots look like, anyway?
This is what that very first cutting to show roots looked like after 6 weeks. If you look at the top you can see the fresh growth, it looks really nice.
I filled this pot up about halfway with dirt and then gently placed the cutting on top and then carefully added in more dirt. Once I felt the roots were covered enough I left my kids help fill it to the top. And then I watered it generously.
And there you have it! I’ll probably do one more update in about a month to show how they’re doing after planting.
Happy rosemary propagation!
