Hi, has anyone got any reasons why my previously healthy rigourous Rosemary Bush has gone brown over past few months. Could it be this terribly wet weather we are having? Any advice welcome

Thanks Sue

Probably they are mediterranean plants so this just might be too much-over the years the same has happened to me-if you have any healthy green shoots take cuttings now-dead easy and will root in no time

They thrive on bare sandy rocky ground with a few drops of water occasionally in the parts where we go in Spain - not quite what we have had of late - they want heat and light, heck, don't we all?  This weather, plus the last two winters may well have done for it.  Some Rosemary's are more tender than others, the upright ones seem to tolerate almost everything that is thrown at them, but the Capri and repens types are less tolerant.

Hope you can find a shoot or two to take cuttings from - good luck.
