Grown for its aromatic evergreen leaves and unusual flowers, rosemary is regarded as an essential culinary and medicinal herb, with an invigorating flavour. It makes a handsome specimen plant in any garden, especially when covered with flowers that attract bees and butterflies. It is also a welcome addition to any herb garden. For the best effect plant it in a position where it is brushed in passing to release its lingering scent. 'Prostratus' is a useful, low growing variety that is less susceptible to wind damage than taller plants. It is also ideal for pots and containers. To keep plants in shape, trim after flowering.

thanks ive been wodering how i could hang on to my Rosemary plant as i have become very attached to watching the bees busy busy working away in the sunshine as i chill in my sun lounger
Can Rosemary take a hard pruning? or will it not come back, as mine has become very bare at the bottom?
I wonder about pruning my rosemary and re-potting it. It is in a pot and has really grown well, tall and widem I`m certain it is pot-bound, although it shows it does not need much attention. Should I do both now or wait ?
