Got myself a small rosemary bush today, I'll put it in the ground tomorrow right next to the lemon and paw paw.

My rosemary is going great guns... It's in one of my pots out the front so gets good water and nutrients and it's sooooo pungent.. I always thought that dry loving herbs like rosemary, became more pungent with less watering. Now I'm not so sure...

Yeah, that's the popular thoery, but I've never tested it. Certainly plenty of punch in my abused plants so perhaps it doesn't matter at all :dunno:

Yep - you're going to have to prune it back in a couple of years. And they live for yonks - some of ours are well over 20 years old and still going strong.

Yep, it'll need pruning where it is, I was reading you can prune them into a hedge.

Yeah, see my photo at the start of this thread LV - that gets pruned into a hedge every year, then needs it again as you can see in the photo.

Killed one plant and lost the other one. I think its somewhere in with the green manure plants that I was probably ment to cut down or dig in before now.

Strip the leaves off except for the tips and use the stems for kebab sticks. They add good flavour to lamb and chicken especially.

Grab those stripped leaves, mince them up with an equal amount of garlic and some olive oil, spread it over lamb chops and then cook them slowly in an overn for a couple of hours !!!!

I have also heard of (but never tried) using some of the hard wood as skewers for lamb-kabobs.

This is also on my to-do list -
