Rejuvenating an old rosemary

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 19:45
Bought a new rosemary today afer reading this thread, only ??1.50 from morrisons, good size too.
My original is older than I can remember and quite pot bound. Its struggled over the last 2 years but this year is yellow rather than green. Even so it has the prettiest and most blue flowers it has ever had! I'll pop it in the border somewhere quiet just for old times sake, we go back a long way.

Enjoy Gg, sounds like you deserve it.

Well! That's just great that is!  Horteum (fox tail grass ) seeds I put in last week are now covered in dandelion seeds!  Guess what I'll be tending to and planting out in my new feather bed!

Already been to GC, checked first for bears, all clear

Bought a new plant for feather bed. Helictotrichon sempervirons. Hope it's ok cos it's one which didn't get mentioned/suggested. Tried to walk away several times but it won in the end . Even took a photo to research it later. Certainly wouldn't have bought it if I had looked at it on google images but lovely in the Gc so lets get it planted and cross fingers!

WINTERSONG - I love love love your arch, looks so much sturdier than mine (gets what ya pays for I guess). What plants are they growing along the path? I have two new ones down at the bottom of the garden next to kids play area that was wise wasn't it? Not really planning further planting there this year but would need to be football friendly
