Rosemary is not only a commonly used aromatic herb in the kitchen but also offers numerous health benefits, making it an ideal ingredient for herbal teas, oils, and tinctures. Due to its versatility, having rosemary readily available at home is highly advantageous. What better way to ensure a constant supply than by growing rosemary from a sprig? Below, we provide simple steps on how to achieve this.

Reproducing rosemary is a straightforward process that can be initiated using a sprig of the plant and a few basic steps. Additionally, rosemary can also be propagated through cuttings, utilizing a robust and healthy fragment of an existing plant. Follow these easy steps to carry out the process at home:

  1. Cut a 15-centimeter segment of a rosemary sprig diagonally, removing the leaves at its base.
  2. Fill a glass with water and immerse the sprig in it. Allow it to soak overnight.
  3. Place the glass with the plant near a window, in a relatively warm area of the house.
  4. If you observe water evaporation during the process, add a small amount of room temperature water.
  5. Approximately one week later, the first roots will begin to form.
  6. When the roots are well-established (around three weeks later), the rosemary is ready to be planted in a pot with soil.
  7. Mix a bit of fertilizer with the soil, create a hole in the center, and insert the sprig.
  8. During the initial week, water every two or three days, bearing in mind that rosemary is sensitive to excessive watering.

Now that you understand how to propagate rosemary from a sprig, start the process immediately to cultivate a thriving plant in the shortest possible time.
