I’ve got a very scraggly rosemary bush living outside. It’s actually one I planted from a cutting of one that is now dead :-(. This plant is doing okay, but was covered in weeds so has grown leggy to reach the sun. Pulling out the weeds helped some, but it’s time for rejuvenation.
I tried taking cuttings and putting them in water, just like I did last time, and they all died. No idea why.
I’m trying again. I’ve got a few cuttings in water (a mix with woody stems and soft stems) and one I’ve put straight into the soil (after dipping in a rooting aid) of a new indoor collection of plants. This metal bowl used to have plants in it and I figure it’s time to try again. It mainly has really hearty plants stolen from the garden: succulents, bromeliads, spider plants, but I’ve also added the rosemary cuttings and peppermint plants (dug from the garden). I must admit that growing food inside hasn’t ever been my forte, especially on the kitchen bench where sunlight is nil, but I thought maybe these tough edibles might be the exception.
