Will my rosemary survive?

Here is the only plant now in my herb garden.  The rest looked so terrible, I composted them all.  However, this didn’t look entirely dead so I am having a go at reviving it.  I’ve dug a 25kg bag of compost into the herb garden soil and have given it a nice spot and loads of water.

Do you think this will survive? Or should I just move on?

What makes me think it won’t survive is that the builders stood on one of my other rosemary plants (a much smaller one) and, when I pulled the remains up, it had a really long root.  This large, droopy rosemary had hardly any roots so it may be that they got chopped off by a spade.

So – should I keep going with this and hope it doesn’t turn brown and shrivel up?  Or do I just get a new one from the garden centre?  You decide.  I’m too bad tempered.

  1. You could trim it back a little and see what happens. Trimming it back the growing tip will encourage it to put energy into growth. Its the right time to trim it anyway as what flowers you have should be coming to an end if they have not ended already.

    Just make sure the roots have enough water, especially in the warmer weather we are expecting.
