Making rosemary last indoors

Tip of the week

Potted rosemary trees and standards last a short time indoors and should not be considered permanent houseplants. Nor have they been hardened off for outdoor display or planting. You can prolong their lives by keeping them in a cool, bright room away from heat sources. Allow the soil surface to dry between waterings.
