Rosemary-roasted chicken is a wonderful way to start an evening. You can start more rosemary plants from cuttings with a little patience. You can even start your own plant from cuttings purchased from the fresh herb section of a grocery store.You don’t need rooting hormone, just some rosemary cuttings and a pot of compost or potting soil. I mixed a little sand in with the compost for drainage.
Younger cuttings are best. Strip off all leaves from the bottom 3 inches.
Poke the cuttings into the prepared compost or potting soil.
Place the cuttings in a shady spot and be sure that the soil is kept moist. It may look a bit sad for a few days, but be patient.
In about 2 weeks, you will start to see new growth.
Tip the plant out gently to check for root growth. If you see roots, it is a good time to let it get more sunlight.
You now have a rosemary plant! I hope some roasted rosemary chicken is in your future!
