Ah, so you do heat it. I think GG thought, as I did that, you were suggesting just shoving some leaves into cold oil and leaving it like that.

Wow. Does not even look like Rosemary.
Those peat sprouting pots should be soaked in water regularly until the plants are at least a few inches tall.
If thats a watered plant pictured, you need lots more water. The pot itself absorbs most of it anyway.
Soak them until they are water logged. Then allow then to dry out a little before soaking again.
This is not the time to parch them. You will kill them.

And what a very good idea that is. Nice needle size and seems like very easy to train. I wonder if there is a variety with shorter needles?

For anyone that wants to grow Rosemary, cuttings are great for propagating.
I take some at the end of season and put cuttings in water. I keep the water changed and allow them to grow in the water until spring.
Then they go into pots or into the garden.

I am working solely with seeds and cuttings these days.

I haven't grown rosemary from seed, but in general, it doesn't do well with a lot of water. Rosemary originated on the arid hillsides of the southern Mediterranean area. I wouldn't soak them until they're water-logged. I'd just try to keep them moist.

That must be why it does so well even on the freeway here unattended.
This little micro climate of Ca. is said to be most like the climate in the Mediterranean.

I would love to have my own rosemary in time for Thanksgiving, thinking on a roast leg of lamb for that event.

I would agree, yes.

Those starter pots are designed to be soaked first even before you use them.
Their purpose is to hold water.
If you don't soak them, they will dry out to fast and the seedling will die.

I agree less water is best with mature rosemary plants. But at this stage and in peat seed starter pots, they must be soaked and allowed to drain and almost dry before soaking again.
Seeds and seedlings do not do well under stressful conditions. Under watering a peat seed pod is a mistake.

Read the directions on a seed starter pod. It says to embed the seed and to soak the whole pot until saturated.
Then continue to keep the pod moist until time to plant.
Not only is this how its supposed to be done, its common sense.

I wonder how they manage to reproduce by themselves, on a sunny, dry hill in France without someone soaking them all the time.
