The Q&A Archives: Rosemary plant

Question: I have a rosemary plant in a container garden along with basil and thyme. Everything is growing great. However, I just noticed that the rosemary stems have some brown (dead?) leaves while most of the plant is still green. We are in the middle of a drought but I keep them watered. Is it a bug or disease? Maybe the sun? Hope you can help. Thanks, Bonnie

Answer: Bonnie,

It may be due to the fact that the plant is staying too wet. Rosemary doesn't like to stay wet so try to not get the plant wet when you water and water just enough to moisten the soil and then allow it to dry out a little before watering again.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
