Rosemary, its official name being Rosmarinus Officinalis, is a woody herb with fragrant needle-like leaves. It belongs to the Lamiaceae family, also known as the mint family, which includes many other herbs. The leaves of Rosemary are commonly used for flavouring in foods.
Where to place Rosemary
Place the Rosemary in a spot where it will receive partly sun, partly shade.
Taking care of Rosemary
Water regularly but don’t over water. The Rosemary does not like to be completely dry nor does it like to be very wet. Feed the Rosemary a standard fertilizer in the spring and summer every two weeks, or a slow release fertilizer twice in the season.
When your rosemary begins to lose its shape, trim back the shoots to help maintain its appearance.
