Rosemary edible?

I don't think it needs anything Tomsk. I don't water mine, but if it's in a pot you need to. And Iwouldn't offer too much food, they're not that hardy and if it grows soft and lush it might have trouble in the winter

Yes, sorry Haisie, how rude of me not to say hello before, Hello. Welcome

Tender plants will need heat Susan, the temperature in an unheated GH is the same as outside, occasionally colder I've found.

rosemary is rosemary. There may be different colours of flowers and manner of growth and hardiness and some taste stronger than others but it's all Rosmarinus officinalis

cutting it back was probably a good move, it wouldn't have looked much in flower if it had got that far not with brown leaves. 

I find the traditional MDs do this a lot for me, I blamed my dry soil and stopped growing them. 

I do better with some of the other species of aster, though 'Monch' which a lot of people recommend doesn't do well for me

from time to time some not so nice people turn up on the forum but most of us respect other peoples outlooks (even if we know they're wrong)

i'd do the sisyrinchium and the  anometheca later in the winter in a cold greenhouse or cold frame. I used to put all the hardy stuff outside as soon as they were ripe but I got things germinating too quickly and had babies to see through winter. or birds would excavate the pots looking for insects. 

if shasta daisy is Leucanthemum x superbum the x in the middle means it's a hybrid ( and maybe even a cultivar of a hybrid) and you won't get more of the parent plant. They're very easy to devide if you want more.

Or you could see what you get from seed, might be even better. I'd wait til spring for that.
