My Rosemary Plant (share your plants)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 

I am quite proud of it. This was the first time I attempted to container garden. This is the only one that we ended up moving with us to the new house (I left the rest for my parents, my mom doens't have much of a green thumb and was thrilled at the idea of fresh herbs in the winter, so dad said he would take care of them) but I was just too proud of the rosemary to leave it. I live in mid-missouri and for some reason rosemary doens't do as well here normally. I normally have a nack at getting it to grow (most my family hates me because rosemary won't grow for them) but this plant exceeded my expectations for a container plant. I had to repot it three different times, including untangling it's roots from some other plants in a planter and it didn't slow it down a bit. It's now been in doors for a few weeks (getting cold), I was worried it would start to droop, but it seems just as happy inside as it did outside.

That's a beautiful plant, Kay!  Must be great to be able to cook with fresh rosemary.

 

I tried keeping some basil inside but I'm not sure, maybe I watered it too much or didn't give it enough sun, but it didn't do very well...

 

This is the corn plant (Deej likes calling it a tree) that we have in our Huddler HQ.  It's doing pretty well, but I think I might be underwatering just a tad (one side has slightly brown tips on the leaves).

 

I also kind of want to repot it to give it a bit more soil.

 

And it also needs a name, I think.  Any suggestions?

Here's a picture of our herb garden.  Not sure what all is in there - it's more my wife's thing.  I'm more of a fruit tree guy.  Looks like one of our dogs snuck in the background there.

Stins - well, the crazy plant in "The Little Shop of Horrors" was named Audrey.  But I think Seymour (flower shop worker played by Rick Moranous) sounds better.  Seymour, the office giant!  LOL

Hahah, Seymour is a great name.  I think maybe we'll avoid having a plant similar to ones that want blood and ultimately eat everyone....why tempt fate, right?  :-)
