A rosemary plant should never be missing in our homes, for many reasons: not only is it a fundamental ingredient in many culinary preparations or a wonderful herbal tea rich in benefits, but it can also be used in cosmetics and natural medicine.
Few people know that it is possible to reproduce rosemary from a single sprig , to have a new and lush plant. If you don’t feel like buying a rosemary plant and want to try making it from a sprig, you’ve come to the right place.
Aromatic herbs such as rosemary can be reproduced by cuttings , that is, through a fragment of the stem of a healthy and vigorous plant and measuring approximately 15 centimeters.
To reproduce rosemary from a sprig, proceed as follows:
- First, cut the twig diagonally and let it sit overnight.
- The next morning, remove all the leaves.
- Pour a little water into a glass container and place the rosemary sprig in it.
- Place the container near a window away from cold drafts.
- As the water grows, it evaporates, so you will need to add room temperature water little by little.
- After about a week, the first shoots of the twig will begin to form.
- After three weeks, the first roots will also have appeared: it is time to plant the rosemary in the ground.
- Choose a 6-inch-deep pot, fill it with soil and compost, make a hole in the center and insert the sprig. Water every 2 to 3 days.
