Plant Care Guide

Full Sunlight


Rosemary cannot tolerate shade, they need at lease 6 hours of direct, full sunlight. Place your rosemary in a south facing window to get the most sunlight. If your rosemary isn't getting enough sunlight, you may find your plant growing a little leggy.

Infrequent Watering


Drought tolerance is a benefit of having Rosemary in your home. Once established you can leave the top few inches of soil to dry in between waterings. When you do water, water enough to have the soil moist but not soggy.



Rosemary grows well in a well draining, sandy or loamy soil, also a slightly acidic to neutral soil is best. The plant does not grow well in heavy clay and wet soils as it needs to be pretty dry. Rosemary doesn’t need too much fertilizer either; compost is good to jump start a healthy life. A balanced liquid fertilizer can help promote growth once established.

Low Humidity


Rosemary loves warm weather and cannot survive in temperatures below 30 degrees Fahrenheit, they do have a great heat tolerance. Temperatures between 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit are great for rosemary to strive. Rosemary prefers moderate humidity levels as high humidity can lead to rot and fungal problems.
