Rosemary Blue Lagoon
Salvia rosmarinus Blue Lagoon
This rosemary has a semi-creeping tendency and gorgeous flowers, that taste great too! 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 is the classic Rosemary, with delicate pale blue flowers starting in spring and popping up again throughout the warm months.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot/spot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot. (
