Rosemary Filled Ornaments


I love rosemary for so many reasons. It's such a hardy plant that is so easy to propagate. To propgate simply snip some new growth remove the bottom leaves and stick it into the soil. The clipping should root without much effort.

Rosemary is a great herb to cook with.  During the holidays we usually make Roasted Rosemary Garlic Potatoes, which just makes the house smell divine.

Towards the late summer our rosemary starts to flower with these beautiful purple flowers.  I thought it would be great to someone save these flowers, and because rosemary is such a hardy evergreen plant it would hold up to being put into glass ornaments.

Cut rosemary from garden.

Stuff the rosemary into glass ornaments.

  2. Beautiful! I have a giant rosemary plant and it's the only thing that survives my gardening "skills"... but it doesn't flower. I bet it would still be really pretty inside the glass ornaments though!
