Doesn't the thought of a warm buttered slice of salted rosemary bread make your mouth water? Not only does this Rosemary taste delicious, the silvery foliage makes it highly attractive in the garden.

Full sun. Rosemary does best in full sun and needs at least 6-8 hours a day. It can also be grown indoors by a north facing window.
Rosemary is droubt tolerant when established and prefers the soil to dry out between watering. However, give your newly planted Rosemary a good soaking every few days in hot summers when the soil is dry, especially if it is in a pot.
Rosemary grows best in nutrient poor, sandy soil - think Provence, Tuscany and the mediterranean which has rockier soils. Too much fertiliser will harm the plant. A good handful of compost around the plant in Spring, and a few slow release organic pellets should more than suffice for the year.
Rosemary likes being re-potted every year to a larger container. Regular well draining potting soil will do, with added fine gravel or succulent mix to help the mixture drain well.
Harvest young stems and leaves for the freshest flavour. Avoid harvesting more than a third of the plant, to allow it time to replace growth.
The name Rosmarinus means 'Dew of the Sea' in Latin, as the herb is a staple in Mediterranean cooking.
