This pungently scented herb grows best in full sun and certainly it requires the midday and afternoon sun to grow well. Although it is hardy is, it would prefer a sheltered position over winter and needs to be well drained – popping containers on bricks or feet during the wettest months helps with this. The arching stems can become very long and pinching out the tips will keep this rosemary much more bushy – never cut back into the old wood though.

Usage

Rosemary’s intense flavour has made it a valuable herb in the kitchen where it is used traditionally, fresh or dried with lamb and other meats, with roast potatoes, on pizza, in pasta sauces and bread, biscuits both savoury and sweet, cakes and desserts. Medicinally it is used as a circulatory stimulants increasing blood to the brain, making it useful for memory and concentration. An infusion of the leaves rinsed through dark hair is said to leave it glossy and bright. Rosemary has long been associated with remembrance and used to remember and honour loved ones.
