Hi everyone,

Oh I so identify with the post title: "Zone Envy"! I'm in Denver, CO and for the last several years I've tried to dig up my rosemary and keep it in a sunny window for the winter. But the lack of humidity caused the branches to dry out around January/ and no amount of water was helpful.

So this fall in one last desperate attempt to salvage my gorgeous plant, I dug it up, put it in a pot then using bamboo stakes, WRAPPED IT IN SARAN WRAP!!. OMG you should see it, it provided just the right amount of humidity and it looks terrific.
