Rosemary & MintSunday, September 05, 2010
The more I prune this little rosemary bush, the more dense is the foliage. Rosemary loves the sun. I love to water this plant in the evenings. The needle-like leaves release very nice invigorating scent :-D
The pruned stems are used to propagate more rosemary bush.
My other herb, mint plant, is not doing that well. Earlier its stems grew thicker and harder. The leaves grew less and turned so small. So I pruned most of them away and now the plant is just too tiny. I just couldn't toss the plant away yet as earlier it has grown so well for me (love its aromatic scent also! I can even smell it while snapping these pics!).
Is the sun too much for this little guy? What can I do?
I do not know the variety of this mint, which was passed to me by my sister-in-law. Anyway although with so few small leaves you see here, the scent is really great :-)
