This pungently scented herb grows best in full sun and certainly it requires the midday and afternoon sun to grow well. Grown In the ground, like other plants it needs watering until established and after that it can be left to get on with it. It does like to have a well-drained soil, especially in winter, but I grow it south facing, in a heavy clay soil and it copes just fine. Rosemary doesn’t want to be cut back into the old wood, but regular pruning of the tips keeps in nice and bushy. Rosemary gold dust is quite hardy, but it can suffer in very cold winters.
The fresh root of horseradish initially used as a medicine and then made more famous mixed with vinegar as a condiment with rich meat or fish.

Fire vinegar is an old recipe that combines immune boosting herbs in a vinegar infusion that also benefits the digestion with its bitter ingredients.
