Harvesting Your Live Rosemary Plant

Trimming Rosemary

Step 1: For the best growth, don’t harvest your live rosemary until the plant is at least 6″ tall.  Since Rosemary is a woody shrub like plant, you will need a sharp set of gardening shears to cleanly cut through the tough stems. 

Step 2: Pick the rosemary sprig that you want to eat and cut a main stem towards the base of the plant.  You may notice that on your rosemary plant that the stems are woody towards the base of the plant and as you move towards the tips the stem turns soft and flexible.  This soft material is where the majority of the oils are stored in the plant so be sure to use these parts of the plant.

Step 3: Strip the leaves away from the stems of the cut rosemary and enjoy using in your kitchen.  Place the cut plant back in a sunny location and it will be ready to cut again in a few weeks time.
