Okay, I can't root rosemary! I've tried them in soil, water, covered for high humidity, uncovered... nothing has been working. Right now I have 4 cuttings about 3" long with only the top 2-3 pairs of leaves left to reduce water loss, they are in a high humidity environment. Any tips, success stories with rosemary cuttings?

Have you tried air layering?? They are a woody plant.

Here's a site for you http://floridagardener.com/misc/airlayering.htm

Wishing you well

Witt is the one to ask about this. I had one raggedy looking plant for several years and took several cuttings, used root hormone and placed in moist potting soil in bright filtered light-Na-da-nothing! I stuck a piece in the flower bed, forgot about it, and it is now about 3 ft. high. No special tips-just leave them alone, I guess!
