Rosmarinus Officinalis Upright spikes of purple-blue flowers, from mid-spring to early summer, and aromatic, dark green leaves. Rosemary is perfect for a sunny herb garden, shrub or mixed border. While winter frosts may kill off some of the shoots the plant should regenerate from the base. The young leaves should be picked regularly to ensure a plentiful supply of young, succulent leaves. Leaves may be used to flavour lamb, pork and roasted vegetables.
To ensure a plentiful supply of young, succulent leaves for culinary use gather the leaves regularly and prune each spring.
