Rosemary, organic seeds
Rosmarinus officinalis belongs to the Labiate family and is originally from the coastal areas around the Mediterranean and has been used from time immemorial. Rosmarinus means "˜dew of the sea"™. It is a perennial half-bush which is often grown as an annual in the North. There is white-, pink- and blue-flowering variants. Pre-cultivate early. Normally, the seeds have low germination capability and sprout slowly. A light place for germination could help. Plant the seeds in light, well-drained, fertilized soil in the warmest place. Keep 25-35 cm between the plants! Rosemary can winter indoors in a cool, light space. It can also winter in an empty green house. The leaves are used for tea, (h)erbs for meat and vegetables and to improve memory. 1000 seeds/g, one portion yields 20-30 seedlings. A portion contains about 100 seeds.
