I am interested in planting rosemary in my garden. I have read that
if the winter is harsh (below 5 F / -15 C) then it should be potted
and brought in doors. Does anybody have tips on how large of a pot I
Perhaps Arp can take 5 F, but most varieties are damaged below 10 F.
Rosemary's hardiness varies between cultivars.
So do the ultimate pot sizes.
That said, we grow quite a bit of it in pots ranging from as small as
1 gallon through a few in 20 gallon pots that are too large to bring
For kitchen use, based just on our experience, I would recommend a 5
gallon size, as it will support a plant that you can harvest from
often without any issues.
As an aside, we find the flavors of prostrate forms inferior to
upright growing forms and our favorite is Tuscan Blue.
I have planted a few rosemary plants into my veggie garden from
curttngs before winter and they are growing well. The winter had a lot
of frosty nights and some days with a few degrees bellow zero.
Apparently rosemary is a frost and drought resistant plant. So
hopefully you will have no problems. If planting in a pot, use a size
that is suitable to the plant size. As the plant grows, just
transplant into a bigger pot. GL
