Rosemary - Rosmarinus Officinalis
This is one of the most popular herbs, featuring evergreen shrubby habit. It grows to a height of 90cm.
Sow inside in a seed tray of soil-less compost. Cover with compost and glass, and maintain a temperature of at least 20C. When large enough, prick out into a 5cm pot, gradually harden off and plant out any time from May to September. It prefers light, well-drained soil in full sun. Rosemary prefers a slightly limey soil because this results in smaller plants with more fragrant leaves. It will stand severe frosts if conditions are not windy and wet as well. Rosemary does not like to have its roots disturbed so leave as much of the root ball undisturbed as possible. Water well if the conditions are at all dry.
