I have done many Rosemary cuttings and they do well in dry area or in pots.Of late i have had to do them pots to bring in the shed when the weather is cold.I also grew a Rosemary hedge for my son from cuttings from the rosemary bush I had planted in his garden.I just took a heel and stuck it in the ground.Its now a hedge.
