More or less as H-C
take cuttings now...asap. You will have young plants for next year then B3
you said your plants are a few years old....how old? Rosemary suddenly gets tired,,woody and straggly and I try to replace them after 6 or 7 years. The replacements are always better.....for the next 6 years or so.
pruning...if you prune hard then, NO. You wont get a bushier plant. Instead you get die back. Pruning every year means you can keep it bushy; miss out a year and you lose the density.
By the way, does your rosemary have bright blue flowers or the usual pale insipid colour? I replaced mine wifh Benenden Blue. Just as good a culinary plant but an attractive flowering plant too. finer better foliage too
