I have 3 pots of rosemary growing, 1 inside in a South facing window that gets watered once a week, sometimes every couple of weeks if I forget. The other two are outside, on the porch that also get full Southern sun, but a LOT more water.

The one inside is growing great, outside, not so good.

So my question is, does Rosemary like it dry and with the consistent warmth it gets inside? I always thought it was supposed to be a good outside plant.

It is a good outside plant but it doesn't like much water.

Thanks Tammy, guess I need to find a drier spot for them outside then.

I too am trying to grow Rosemary, but it's not doing well inside or outside. My other herbs (started from seed at the sametime) are five times bigger.

Rosemary is tempermental. I finally found a brand that is growing for me outside. It has a much longer needle. I don't know how to identify the exact type it is but if I figure it out I'll let you know I promise. I'm so glad to finally have one that doesn't die within 2 weeks of getting it home.

My indoor one is doing awesome and my outdoor ones look like they are about to bloom. Pretty interesting how the different environment is causing them all to do different things. Especially since they were all started at the exact same time and are the exact same type.

Ever notice that indoor herbs are soft and tender, and outdoors in the sun are tougher and stronger with more fragrance?

My indoor ones sure appear to be softer, as well as growing much better.
