I was having trouble keeping this Rosemary plant hydrated because it has out grown the pot it is planted in, and cracked the side of the pot wide open. Actually I have a number of plants that have done this and need to be replanted in the ground, both to save the plant and reduce my water requirement.
Organic Bed. Then I dug a hole for the Rosemary which is about four or five inches larger in diameter than the original pot.
Compost Soil Mix to the bottom of the hole first. Then level the Rosemary plant in the hole.
Compost Soil Mix.
Organic Bed holds its water well and I never seen plants that seem to need water.
