Salvia rosmarinus 'Foxtail'
This is a pretty rosemary with semi creeping stems which trail over pots, it gets its name as it's said to be reminiscent of a foxes tail. A Superb Herbs favourite rosemary variety! 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 overwater, think sun-baked hillsides in the Mediterranean. This variety is great for trailing over the edges of your pots, providing a Rosemary blanket effect.
All herbs are planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
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. (
