How to Care for Rosemary Arp
After purchasing your Rosemary Arp Plant, be sure to read our recommended care instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
How Do I Water My Rosemary Arp Plant?
ARP Rosemary plants are quite drought-resistant, meaning they require a minimal amount of water. These plants can even die if kept in standing water. Planting them in a well-draining soil will prevent them from taking in too much water. We recommend you don't begin to water your plant until it is fully established. Once this is achieved, you may begin to water your plant on a regular basis. The key is not to overwater your rosemary plant because it could lead to irreversible root rot.
What is the Best Light for My Rosemary Plant?
Rosemary Arp loves full sun, the more sun exposure the better for this plant. We recommend at 6 hours of full-sun a day. These plants can grow in light shade, but grow fastest in the sun. An extremely important factor in your plant's growth and success is great air circulation.
What is the Best Soil for Rosemary Arp?
ARP Rosemary is one of the plants that survives in urban pollution and thrives in inner city environments. There is no particular soil needed for this plant as long as it drains thoroughly. Basically, the dryer and more poor quality soil, the better for rosemary. If you plant it in a clay based soil, be sure to plant it high or with the base slightly above the soil line.
How do I Fertilize Rosemary Plants?
Very little is involved in fertilizing your Rosemary plant. The only time you should worry about fertilizing your plant is in the early spring. This is simply because the cold winter months could slow the growth of the plant down. Also if you see your plant turning pale yellow, give it some fertilizer and that will perk it right back up. There is no specific type of fertilizer your rosemary will require. Any all-purpose in dry or liquid form will do the trick. Try not to over fertilize or fertilize in the winter months. This is simply unnecessary and could damage your plant.
