The other day I wrote about layering rosemary plants. Layering is the process of propagation where roots are formed by placing the stem of the plant underneath rooting medium (soil) to allow it to root with the support of the parent plant. If you look closely at the picture to the left you can see small roots being formed at the base of the plant. These roots will continue to grow and will eventually be able to support their own plant.
Rosemary grows very well outdoors in Tennessee. Yesterday while visiting my parents house for Thanksgiving dinner I took an updated picture of the rosemary. The picture on the left (it's the same one in the layering rosemary post) was taken a year ago and here it is now! Notice how the large rock in the first picture has been devoured by the spreading herb. Like I said, it grows well in Tennessee!
