Keeping rosemary alive furiously frustrates growers in cold climes. Mike McGrath, host of You Bet Your Garden, reveals how to grow a small tree in areas where ice storms are imminent. Plus answers to all your growing questions.
Question of the Week:
“I try every year to grow rosemary. It does great but does not return after winter. Is there a certain type of rosemary that would be more hardy over the winter, or should I pot it for the first year or two, and then transplant it permanently into my herb garden? We’d like to have a really tall and bushy rosemary.”
