Rosemary Green Ginger
Salvia rosmarinus 'Green Ginger'
An upright rosemary with ginger, rosemary-scented leaves. Use the deliciously scented leaves to flavour lamb and pork, infuse in vinegar, oil or in tea. 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.
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.

Prune regularly in warmer months to keep a regular supply of fresh material.
