Rosemary makes a fantastic garden herb, it is a perennial evergreen that has needle like pungent aroma with pretty pale blue flowers that attract bees & beneficial insects. Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is great grown as an herb in the veg patch or in the garden borders.

Rosemary eventually grows to a height of between 50-70cm and grows for up to 15 years and has a powerful fragrance that complements lamb & chicken dishes and a few sprigs roasted with roast potatoes tastes very good. It is great fresh or dried.

Germination can be low and erratic, seeds can sometimes take 2-3 months to germinate, so patience is required and don’t throw the compost away too quickly. Rosemary is also slow to grow but is also quite expensive to buy.
