These are from seeds, they still have their baby leaves.

Fish it out if you have used a sprig but if you have chopped it as finely as you possibly could then it will be absolutely fine. It just depends how you have used it. Chopped absolutely fine it is wonderful with potatoes for instance. Don't forget to add it to your bathwater for a little touch of luxury. Good for the boys as well as the girls because it doesn't have a 'flowery' scent but a rich herbal one. Wonderful as a hair rinse as well after shampooing

This is a very dangerous idea. You're likely to have a nice batch of rosemary-botulinum oil.

Hmm. What do the baby leaves look like? Is there a way you could take the plant, with all the earth, out of the pot, in such a way that you could put it back in the pot fairly undisturbed, to see how much the roots have grown?

I was wondering about that. Rosemary vinegar would be safer.

Here is what the biggest of them looks like...the pics are fuzzy, they were almost bone dry and I've lost one of them for sure. There are 4 left out of the whole packet...most never even sprouted.

Yeah, that's definitely baby leaves.

Nope, no way to get those out of the "pots" safely. I have used peat pots, but I don't like them, because they don't really disappear when they are transplanted and then they cramp the roots. I wonder if that's what's happening with your pellet thingees. Yeah, they probably need more water at this stage than the ones with needle-like leaves.

Maybe someone who has grown rosemary from seed has some better advice than mine.

I should have just been more patient and bought already grown seedlings.

Might not be too late for that. I consider buying seedlings the less patient method.
