I just bought about 6 or so NOID rosemary plants (about 2 feet high) at a great price. While the coming week looks devoid of frost, we could have a one any time after next weekend (assuming predictions hold). Should I race to get them planted or would it be better to bury the pots and plant in the spring? Can they survive winters on a porch if I plant them in containers?

I think that you should keep them as house plants over the winter.
I don't think Rosemary will take your winters.
Burying them deep and mulching might work, but ???

I have a friend roughly 1 hour east of here who grows lush rosemary as borders. He too lives in an urban area so maybe the few degrees extra from the urban heat island is enough to help.

With 6 to work with I would try a couple different ways , and let us know your results Smiling
Rosemary is not hardy here so I can not overwinter outside and have had very little luck inside . I think I water too much *Blush*
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

Kentucky. The rosemary plants I got are erect. Didn't know the rosemarys came in differing growth forms. Will get pic later.
