Rosemary Herb Plants - Glimpse of History

Many myths surround Rosemary - native to the dry, rocky areas of the Mediterranean, especially along the coast herb. According to one legend, Rosemary was draped around the Greek goddess Aphrodite as she rose from the sea. Rosemary also has a long history as a medicinal herb. Dating back to 500 B.C., the ancient Greeks and Romans used Rosemary to treat various ailments. Even Egyptian tombs from 3,000 B.C. have been found to contain dried sprigs of Rosemary.

Rosemary Herb Plants - Growing

Rosemary

Rosemary is a very adaptable herb that can be grown in a pot inside or out, but bear in mind this perennial herb can grow quite big. It can be cut into lovely shapes or used as a small hedge to protect other less hardy herbs. This herb is trouble-fee, and once planted, it usually lasts for decades. It requires little attention, demanding a prune yearly to prevent the plant from becoming too woody. 

Rosemary should be planted in full sun in well-drained soil in spring or autumn. Young plants may fail if their roots sit in wet soil in winter, so Rosemary is best grown in a container for a year or two before planting in the garden. Please remember never to overwater Rosemary Plants and feed only after flowering.

On average, Rosemary Herb Plants get up to about 80cm/32in, but depending on the variety, they may reach up to 1.5m (5ft).

Rosemary Herb Plants- Harvesting

To harvest rosemary, gently pull small sprigs away from the main stem. They provide a delicious experience when added to roast potatoes and meat (especially lamb). You can also use secateurs to remove large branches of Rosemary and use them for roasting. 

Adding Rosemary to bottles of vinegar or oil is a great way to infuse them with extra flavour. This is a simple way to take your cooking to the next level and impress your guests.
