Rosemary Miss Jessops Upright
Rosmarinus officinalis 'Miss Jessopp's Upright'
This upright rosemary variety has light-blue flowers in early spring, perfect against a sunny wall. 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 herb 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/spot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot. (If you'd like it delivered in a compostable POSIpot instead of the plastic nursery pot, let us know!)
