Pink flowering rosemary
Rosmarinus officinalis 'Majorca Pink'
Use the deliciously scented leaves to flavour lamb and pork, infuse in vinegar or oil. Rosemary has many beauty benefits with astringent, purifying and anti-ageing properties. A simple home treatment is to steam and rejuvenate your face with a couple of sprigs of rosemary in boiling water. The next morning use the cooled concoction as a re-balancing scalp rinse after shampooing. It's also great to sip infused in a cup of boiling water if you've indulged a little too much the night before.
Keep your pot in a sunny position and don’t overwater, think sun-baked hillsides in the Mediterranean.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot.
