Organic Shady Acres Rosemary

Organic Shady Acres Rosemary

Exquisite Taste, Top Pick for Chefs

Shady Acres Rosemary stands out as a rapid-growing herb renowned for its outstanding flavor, making it a top choice for culinary enthusiasts. This variety seldom flowers, channeling its energy into crafting fragrant, savory leaves. Thriving in full-to-part sun settings with well-drained soil, it proves unappealing to deer and rabbits. Perfect for indoor cultivation near east, south, or west-facing windows, maintaining moisture is key. The allure of Shady Acres Rosemary lies in its robust taste and adaptability, ensuring a delightful culinary experience.

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots

Selecting the Right Location: 

Choose a location with full sun to partial shade for growing Shady Acres Rosemary. While Rosemary prefers full sun, it can tolerate some shade, especially in hotter climates. Ensure the soil is well-drained and slightly acidic with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Amending heavy clay soils with organic matter such as compost can improve drainage and soil structure. 

Planting Shady Acres Rosemary: 

Transplant seedlings outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and soil temperatures have warmed to at least 60°F (21°C). Space plants 12-18 inches apart in rows or clusters. 

Watering and Care: 

Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged, especially during the establishment period. Once established, Rosemary is drought-tolerant and prefers slightly dry conditions. Water Rosemary plants at the base to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to fungal diseases. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. 

Fertilizing Shady Acres Rosemary: 

Rosemary is a light feeder and does not require heavy fertilization. Incorporate organic compost into the soil before planting to provide essential nutrients. Avoid over-fertilizing Rosemary, as excessive nitrogen can lead to lush foliage but poor flavor. Side-dress with compost or a balanced fertilizer once or twice during the growing season if necessary. 

Pruning and Harvesting: 

Prune Shady Acres Rosemary regularly to encourage bushy growth and prevent legginess. Remove any dead or woody stems and trim back the tips to promote new growth. Harvest Rosemary leaves as needed throughout the growing season. Use sharp scissors or pruning shears to snip off individual stems or branches. Avoid harvesting more than one-third of the plant at a time to ensure continued growth. 

Pest and Disease Management: 

Monitor Rosemary plants regularly for signs of pests such as aphids, spider mites, or powdery mildew. Handpick any pests or use organic insecticidal soap as needed. Practice good garden hygiene by removing and disposing of any diseased or infested plant material promptly. Avoid overhead watering to minimize the risk of fungal diseases. 

Using Fresh Shady Acres Rosemary: 

Fresh Rosemary leaves are prized for their aromatic fragrance and robust flavor, making them a versatile herb in the kitchen. Use Rosemary to flavor a wide range of dishes, including roasted meats, poultry, vegetables, and bread. Rosemary pairs well with garlic, lemon, olive oil, and other Mediterranean herbs, adding depth and complexity to culinary creations. Experiment with different Rosemary varieties to explore unique flavors and aromas. 

Growing Shady Acres Rosemary can be a delightful and satisfying experience for gardeners of all levels. By following these guidelines for planting, caring for, and harvesting Rosemary, you can enjoy a bountiful supply of fresh, aromatic herbs throughout the growing season. Whether used fresh, dried, or preserved, Rosemary adds a touch of elegance and flavor to any dish and is a must-have herb in any kitchen garden.

Guarantee

We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
