Rosemary Prostrata 'Creeping Rosemary' (Rosmarinus officinalis prostratus group 'Creeping Rosemary') Herb in 1L Pot

Rosemary Prostrata or 'Creeping Rosemary' is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant evergreen needle-like leaves and purple flowers from April - June. It 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 in winter. True to its origins, Rosemary prefers sunny and sheltered conditions. It will stand frosts if conditions are not windy and wet as well. Rosemary is one of the most decorative herbs and is well worth growing for its appearance alone,  Creeping Rosemary has a prostrate habit meaning it will spread and stay low approx. 30x30 cm.  It makes a good container plant and will trail over a wall or raised bed. To prevent the plant getting too woody always cut back by one third in the Autumn.

Herb Usage

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. For Centuries Rosemary has also been used medicinally with the essential oil being used to treat a variety of ailments including aches and pains, sprains and headaches. It is also used to perfume toiletries.
