I said to The Herbal Husband last week, "We need to dig up the rosemary that is along my rock wall in my herb garden. It didn't grow too big. An ideal candidate to come into the garage!" Well, we got that rosemary and this one too! Hopefully, they will both survive. They are both in the house. Rosemary does better in an unheated room or garage with windows and with a southern exposure. One is in the basement and the other is in the bathroom! They get powdery mildew very easily in the winter indoors. I will be lobbying to get them both in the garage soon!
We also dug up this favorite plant, lemon verbena. Always have to have one in the house for the winter. That guarantees especially if you live in the northern part of the U.S., that you will have a lemon verbena in your garden at the earliest point for planting. Sometimes that is not until Memorial Day for us. It cannot go out until all danger of frost is gone! Usually it loses all of its leaves when it comes inside. Sometimes we have fresh leaves that hang on until Christmas. We cut the plant back then if there are still leaves. Then in February it wakes up and starts new shoots and by the time it is ready to go out into the garden, we have made at least a couple of lemon verbena bread recipes! Here is the recipe if you missed it!
