I have tried twice now to start Rosemary from seed and failed both times. Last year I planted them in a self watering window box with a number of other herbs. It never really came up well and never thrived, then we went on vacation and it died.
This year I tried again in a different pot and it still came up slowly or not at all (most seeds did not germinate it seems). Then I knocked the pot over and that was the end of that attempt.
I am ready to try again. I am going to use a 6" self watering container and potting mix and a new pack of seeds.
What are the pitfalls and hangups starting rosemary from seed? What can I do to improve my chances or even ensure success?
My weather: Hot during the summer (mid 90s during the day mid 70s at night). Some rain.
