I love cooking with rosemary and the bushes are gorgeous to have around your garden. Did you know you can grow rosemary from a cutting of another bush?
This means you can take a cutting from the next rosemary bush you see and grow your own easily at home.
What you’ll need:
- rosemary cuttings
- paper towel
- Choose a rosemary bush where the ends of the plant are very supple not brittle.
- Cut as many cuttings as you would like about 20cms long.
- Place paper towel at the bottom of cup and place your cuttings in the cup.
- Add some water to the cup, enough to cover the paper towel.
- Leave the cup for 2 weeks (making sure it stays moist). After 2 weeks, roots will have sprouted and the cuttings can be planted around your garden. Nurture them and they will grow into a thriving bush which you can use in cooking.
I have a rosemary bush, however I am going to try this so we have more around the garden.
What have you grown from a cutting? Any tips to share? Please add your comment below.
