Hi all:

My wonderful mother recently gave me a potted rosemary. I've never been a huge herb gardener, so I don't really know what I'm doing.* How low of a temperature can a potted rosemary stand?* It got pretty chilly here in Iowa last night, so I brought it into my enclosed porch and put it back out this morning after the sun was nice and high.

Is this treatment ok until temps are steadily warm? Or can rosemary stand a bit of chilliness?* From what I've read online, rosemary is not hardy in my zone (5) but I'm hoping it will be ok if it stays above freezing.

Also any tips on caring for this plant would be appreciated. It's looking nice and tall and gree right now. But everything I've read is making me think it may not be the easiest thing to take care of.
