Rosemary is a beautiful aromatic herb which only needs to be brushed by hand to release its fragrance. It is probably the most popular of all herbs. Rosemary originates in the Mediterranean region. It prefers an open, sunny spot with average, well-drained soil. It will not tolerate wet roots.
Rosemary is easy to propagate by eight cm tip cuttings or by layering. Simply place several cuttings into a pot, water them well and cover them with a plastic bag until the new roots have formed. Re-pot each tiny plant into individual pots to allow a strong root system to develop before planting them out in the garden.
