Rosemary used to be difficult to germinate, and gardeners would have to plant many, many extra seeds to be assured of success. That has all changed with the advent of multiseed pellets, which bring you 5 fresh rosemary seeds in every pellet. Now, with this exciting SimplyHerbs variety, you can expect sprouts from every planting—and once rosemary sprouts, it's off and running, ready to harvest in under two months.

Use these multiseed pellets in containers or the garden. Although rosemary is perennial in warm climates, it is easily grown as an annual everywhere, because it matures quickly and provides such beauty as well as edible foliage for fresh and dried use as an herb. It is even useful for shaping into a little holiday tree—and it will perfume any room deliciously.

Quickly reaching 12 to 24 inches high and wide, rosemary has a naturally well branched, dense form and very slender, sage green, needle-like leaves. The stems are quite woody, and older plants (where it is perennial) resemble miniature shrubs.

The foliage is best harvested for cooking purposes before the plant blooms, but you will probably want to grow a few extra rosemary plants just for the blue summer flowers. A true edible ornamental, rosemary belongs on every patio, deck, and porch where full sunshine can nourish it. And it's quite water-saving, asking only for an occasional drenching once it reaches full size in summer.

Space plants 12 to 18 inches apart in the bed or border for dense coverage, and if you are growing rosemary where it is perennial, shear it back in late winter to encourage even more branching and a symmetrical, pleasing shape. It needs excellent soil drainage and regular watering during spring growth the first year, and afterwards is quite heat- and drought tolerant. Such a delight.

Perennial in zones 7-10; grown as an annual everywhere. It is ornamental as well as useful.

This seed comes as a "pellet". "Pelleted" seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.

Good Product

Have grown this variety twice and had germination from each pellet on both occasions. The 2018 crop transplanted well and over wintered under agribon cloth. On the cusp of growing zones 6 and 7 the plants grew well and provided several cuttings through the growing season.

Germination started in 12 days

I planted my 10 Rosemary pellets in small pots of soil on Jan. 7th, and my first sprouts started to emerge on Jan. 19th. Rosemary has a bad reputation for slow germination, but the pelleted seeds I bought through Park Seed seem to be doing fine. So far, 4 of the pots have at least 1-2 sprouts emerging. I have my 10 small pots in a tray, on top of a warming mat, and covered with a dome to keep in the humidity. I have no doubt that by springtime, I will have many little Rosemary plants to bring outdoors.

Good results, for rosemary

I wasn't very hopeful of getting any germination out of year-old seeds, yet 6 out of 8 came up. I sowed them in a 60-cell biodome and added a heat mat a few days later.

Easy germination, lovely fragrance

I started these indoors in sterile seed starter mix and grow lights. I followed the directions on the package. After Mother's Day weekend, I hardened off and transferred outside to a pot. I barely watered it, as rosemary does not need much more than normal Chicago summer rains. It did grow to 14" tall. I had four harvests! I could had more. I used this to cook with, make rosemary oil. This year, it will be a companion plant to my ornamental cabbage.
