Rosemary can make a great addition to any herb garden, but it does require a little bit of pruning to grow properly and look its best. Each year in early spring, trim 2–3 inches (5.1–7.6 cm) from the long, leaf-covered stems on the outermost part of the plant. Remove dead wood and criss-crossing branches to reduce the size of overgrown shrubs, being careful not to cut back more than a third of the plant’s overall growth at one time. Don’t forget to save your fresh rosemary clippings when you’re done!
