Great germination rate!

Based on knowing that rosemary can be very slow to germinate or even not germinate at all, I didn't have high expectations but I was hopeful. I also did what you are not supposed to do and left the box of seeds I ordered in front of a warm heater vent so I was expecting the worst. But these germinated within a week or two (except for a few that popped up several weeks later) and most of the seeds I planted germinated! They're doing great so far so I'm really pleased with the quality of seeds.

Pleasantly Surprised!

I only learned after purchasing that rosemary is finicky about germination. So, I planted about 20, at first it didn't seem like anything was happening. I had maybe 4-5 pop up, and impatiently used the soil for other plants. Surely enough within the next month, rosemary popped up all over the place. I have about 10 now. So, I'm very happy. They are a bit slow to grow though. But I've since potted them a size up and given more sun. The smell is amazing.
