Rosemary is an evergreen. Don’t water it. Needs only rain. Soil needs to be 6–7 ph. Add lime but not fertilizer. Take in in in the winter if you get lots of snow (snow will crush and break it). Soil has to drain well so..but maybe this wasn’t a story about growing rosemary but about growing yourself. Funny that Rosemary plants grow slowly and don’t reach their potential for several years and need special care.
