Get to Know Rosemary

An essential cooking herb, this one is practically unkillable and grows just about anywhere. Apparently rosemary tea is good for your memory, too.

Positioning

Full sun, in pots or in garden beds. It can grow to about one metre tall, so make sure it has room to bloom.

Watering

Water regularly throughout the growing season, you can pare back a bit in winter.

Care

Trim after flowering – in fact you can harvest about one third of the plant without fear. Move indoors to a bright and cool indoor spot over winter if you live in a cold environment.
