Wintering Rosemary Indoors
Answered by: Inge Poot

Just one quick question for you today. We recently bought a 12 inch pot of Trailing Rosemary which had been outdoors. It is now living indoors with an eastern exposure. It has started to flower and I want to know if I should pinch it back or leave it to do it’s own thing.

If you want to enjoy the flowers then just let it do its own thing, since flowers form on the newest growth. If you want a bushier plant and have a seedgrown plant with ho hum flowers, then by all means pinch the plant back and eat the pickings! The most important thing is to kkep the plant evenly moist, since drying out kills the roots.
