About Rosemary

Rosemary is an essential culinary herb and aromatic that grows as an evergreen shrub with upright branches and needle-like leaves. With its minty/pine taste, rosemary is the perfect aromatic for meats, soups and stewed and can be used fresh or dried.

Rosemary is sometimes known as the "dew of the sea." Rosemary originates from the Mediterranean coast where it has symbolized happiness, protection and love. Rosemary is known to have therapeutic and medicinal properties.

Rosemary is a wonderful addition to any garden!

What is cold stratification and why does it help?

The seeds of many hardy plants - especially native varieties - have tougher outer coatings that help protect them from germinating too early in the spring or too late in the summer. These varieties re-seed naturally in the wild and stay dormant until the proper time for them to start sprouting. For home gardeners, this also means that the seeds can sometimes be trickier to plant in the spring and sowing the seeds without the proper preparation may yield less than stellar results.

But fortunately there are some steps that can be taken to simulate the winter conditions that these plant varieties need to break dormancy and improve germination rates for these varieties! Cold stratification is the most widely used method and it is easy, quick, and sure to help!

Here's how it can be done easily and with materials that are likely readily available in your kitchen!

  1. Soak your seeds in water for 1-2 hours.
  2. Use a paper towel or coffee filter to drain the water.
  3. Spread seeds out in a single layer on the paper towel.
  4. Wrap a dry paper towel around the damp paper towel to help keep things moist but not too wet (we don't want it to become moldy).
  5. Place in a zip lock bag and seal.
  6. Label the variety and date clearly on the bag.
  7. Place in the zip lock back the refrigerator for 1 month before planting. If seedlings start to sprout in the bag in the refrigerator, remove immediately and either plant in the ground or in pots until it’s time to plant outdoors

Note that for fall planting of native wildflowers or varieties that require cold stratification, this step isn’t necessary. Nature will do what it does best during the winter months and cold stratify the seeds for you - but if you are planning on starting these in the spring, cold stratification is highly recommended!
