Poorly prostrate rosemary

Rosemary's aren't very long-lived plants, but they do strike easily from cuttings. I'd take some cuttings now from some of the healthier areas of the shrub and year you'll have several small replacements.

Philippa - have you still not got the PM I sent?

Our friend eventually arrived - she got as far as the pub in the village, stopped to check the way to our house, and her car refused to start again! We picked her up and brought her back and fed her, and she'll be phoning her Breakdown service when she gets up this morning.
