I have just started my annual outdoor container garden today, which is exciting! I have a rosemary plant which lives indoors in the winter, and I brought it out for the first time today, and also repotted it. It is several years old and has not done very well this winter, so I'm looking for advice to help it feel better. A lot of the leaves are dry and dead and falling off; there is still some green, but I wonder if it would be kinder to the plant to prune it back pretty severely so it can put its energy into new green, catch its breath so to speak. I'm hoping that the new larger pot will help, anyway.
Any advice? My sister has a rosemary that is many years old, so I don't think mine is just at the end of its natural lifespan.
