Rosemary is a herb that produces a wonderful decorative flower and is extremely simple to grow. It is long lasting and durable meaning you get a great return from your planting and ensures flavoursome cooking for many years!

Soil Prep

Rosemary prefers a light soil, but luckily it tends to adapt to what ever soil is used, as long as the area is not water logged. Although it manages in severe frosts, Rosemary thrives in sunny and sheltered conditions.

How to Plant

Rosemary is available to plant from either seeds or by taking cuttings or buying an already growing Rosemary plant. If using cuttings, one or two should be added to each pot and kept at an ambient temperature of 15-20 degrees. This will ensure that the root of the plant grows and will be ready to plant after 8 weeks.

Pruning/Harvesting

Rosemary can be used year round, although is most flavoursome in the summer months. It can be both picked from the garden and also dried, to ensure a further burst of flavour for your cooking. An ideal herb to add to your roast dinners or grinded together with salt to create new dishes with potatoes, parsnips and mushrooms or together with some olive oil to make a fresh salad dressing.
