It has also been pruned severely, and may look a little sparse.
No worries, there is now plenty of space for it to fill out with new growth this summer.
Tiny, pale blue flowers complement the pleasant aroma of the needles when the plant is stroked. Rosemary is very tough and drought resistant, give it the sunlight it craves and it will be a reliable garden beauty.
I do dry rosemary needles to use in the kitchen through the year. A stem laid across a piece of salmon when baking, will impart a subtle scent of this herb.
