Rosemary, Green Ginger (Rosmarinus Officinalis 'Green Ginger') is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant evergreen needle-like leaves. It is native to the Mediterranean region, and as such, prefers a light, sandy soil, which will fully satisfy its meagre feeding needs. Having said that, rosemary is tolerant of most soil conditions as long as they are not water-logged. True to its origins, Rosemary prefers sunny and sheltered conditions. It will stand frosts if conditions are not windy and wet as well.
Green Ginger Rosemary will grow to 90cm, and has striking small dark blue flowers in spring. The leaves of this aromatic perennial are sharply flavoured with ginger and give a real hit of rosemary as well. A fabulous addition to the culinary garden and a must for the keen cook.
The leaves of the Rosemary plant are extremely aromatic, and can be finely chopped and used to flavour a variety of dishes, especially stuffing. Many cooks simply cut sprigs of rosemary and place with roasted meats, especially lamb, pork, chicken and turkey.

I was really pleased with this herb. I give talks to gardening clubs and women's institutes etc on herbs and wanted to replace my current green ginger rosemary that had become woody. This plant will now be going on tour with several others! It is very strong and I have no hesitation in recommending your company.
