This lovely slightly sprawling rosemary and finer leaves tend to be a prolific flowerer and is covered with happy bees in spring. The branches can be a bit more fragile than other types, breaking more easily, so best planted where there isn’t lots of passing traffic.

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’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 stimulant 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.
