Rosmarinus officinalis

Rosemary

Price: €6.95

A small evergreen shrub whose scented foliage is a staple of Mediterranean cooking and an essential ingredient in many dishes. An Irish saying says that a Rosemary bush planted by the front door of a house shows that there is a 'strong woman' looking after things inside. It is important that it is in a sunny spot in well-drained, fertile soil - plants in wet soil have not done well over the last couple of years. Rosemary can be clipped once or twice a year to keep it at whatever size is required. Makes an unusual low hedge which releases its aroma when brushed against. Has small but attractive blue flowers in summer. Medicinally used to treat headaches, depression and migraines. 1.5 L container. Please note: although we keep good stock of herbs, the herbs displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops at all times.
