#3 Rosemary

This week’s winter warming herb is a strongly scented evergreen shrub which many people grow in urban gardens. There are a few Rosemary shrubs growing along my street and I am not alone in enjoying a small amount every week or so, in my meals.

My Rosemary needed a drastic haircut this spring due to a Rosemary beetle infestation

If you are able to find some Rosemary, growing near you, I’d love to see a photo and learn what you like to do with it.

Rosemary is in the aromatic Lamiaceae family. It is known for its ability to stimulate the mind and digestive system.

  1. Hi Lynn,

    Here are my two Rosmarinus plants. A really interesting “foxtail” variety. This is the plant you gifted me a few years ago and it has come on really well 🙂 The other is a standard plant grown from a very small cutting. I also spotted an Acanthus on my bike ride yesterday. A beautiful example with really large seed pods. It was near a small community shop and cafe so I may pop back later this week and pick some for sewing next year. Looking forward to the next zoom. Speak soon. Lou xxx
