I have several Rosemary bushes, 3-4 ft. diameter & 3 ft.tall. Can I cut back/prune and replant my cuttings to establish in other areas of my landscape?

Rosemary roots nicely all summer long from tip cuttings about four to six inches long. Try to use a shoot that is not blooming. Remove the lower leaves, dip the end in rooting hormone and stick it into a barely dampened soilless potting mix. Cover with a clear plastic bag or a clear dome to maintain humidity and set it in a bright spot out of direct sun. Check for roots periodically and remove the cover to allow fresh air in every day or so.
