It's Rosemary Officinalis,TT.Have had it for 12 years can you believe! It is now appro3-4 feet but started out a very straggly shrub.Have carefully pruned it a little to keep it in shape.

Thanks ..You've trained it into a good shape :o)

I have one in the kitchen. I bought it as a 'houseplant' and thought, once the warmer weather comes, I shall be able to get this outside....still waiting!

Didn't think this one would do much,K.......but must like its sunny position!

I have Rosemary against a fence about 7ft high and new Rosemary plants about 7cm high .... Lol.

It's gorgeous, J...they look fabulous as they mature when you keep them in shape like that.
(another one of my casualties, I'm afraid - not dead, but nearly)

Karensusan - they're hardy in all but the late 'deep freeze' which happened here (and mine was young)! Go for it! :)))

Your pruning has paid dividends M - give yourself a big pat on the back, all my rosemarys (if they have survived) have always gone a bit woody at the bottom when they mature. Yours is really good, you'll have to let us know your pruning techniques. Hope you have lots of garlic planted to go with it!

Hi P! It did start to go that way and then after a few months decided to behave...no special technique.

You are too modest, cant all be down to luck!

Fraid so!

My Rosemary is also 12 years old grown from a cutting. Like Poppy mine is a bit woody at the bottom. Was going to dig it up - but OH likes it too much to use when he's cooking me roast lamb. (Sadly not often Welsh lamb, which he assures me is the best! lol)

OH is right.After tasting Welsh lamb,you will never eat an alternative.......Sadly it is rocketing in price! Special occasions only,I fear.

Oooohhh dear me! :(

Seems Im not the only one with a 'woody bottom' then ..lol!

Will have to decide that in June,R!!!!LOLx
