Rosmarinus officinalis Prostratus Group
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 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 over water, think sun-baked hillsides in the Mediterranean. This variety is great for trailing over the edges of your pots, providing a Rosemary blanket effect.
Single herb plant in a 15cm Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer. Planted in a peat-free compost mix with added vermiculite for extra drainage.
