Hi there,

I'm growing rosemary indoor for th 1st time in my life. I've noticed that the plant is starting to turn brown and I'm afraid it's going to die soon. I currently growing it in normal potting soil and water it with a light water spray everyday.

What should I do to prevent my little baby from dying? :(

Cheers

First, stop watering it. I have many rosemary plants in the ground that never get watered. They like hot, dry and sunny locations. Rosemary does not do well indoors. If it stays wet it's very prone to spider mites. Put it outside, if it's not too late.

After many attempts at growing a variety of rosemary as potted plantss, my recommendation would be...PLANT IT IN THE GROUND.

The little 4" plant that I planted several years ago has now overtaken the bed it's in and grown over the surrounding walkway. Each year it is more and more beautiful increasing its flowering many fold, and ohhh the beautiful fragrance.

You are watering it to death.

One of my huge rosemary is showing signs of too much water and turning brown. Any suggestions to salvage it? I know it sits near a low spot but up to now has been fine and it's neighbor 3 feet away is fine. Corn meal maybe?

It probably got too much water. Cornmeal isn't going to help that. You need to make sure it's planted in a very well drained bed because they don't want to stay wet. If it's planted in a low-lying are and we got so much rain, it was probably semi-submerged. It just needs to dry out. Don't water it.

Try aerating the soil and adding the cornmeal. That will help a lot. And compost always helps increase water absorption and access to oxygen. The drought tolerant plants have had a time of it these last couple of months in north Texas but if everyone else is having the same results as me, they are growing incredibly fast, blooming like mad and gorgeous now.

The sick tree treatment might do a world of good.
