Like many herbs, rosemary is a rather attractive plant. It has long, narrow, spine-like leaves of a silvery, grey-green colour. There is a single species ? r.officinalis ? but you can buy several varieties. Albus is the most popular and the one I prefer, for it has delicate, blue-mauve flowers and is perfect for culinary use. There is also a white-flowered variety, Miss Jessops, and you can buy a ground cover type, Prostratus, to use in rockeries and the like. It is a dense, pretty bush and, as an evergreen, makes a good [edible!] hedge. Grown to full height, it is between four and six feet tall. Mine is not much more ... Read the complete review

When I first moved to this country in the mid-70’s rosemary was known but not widely used or at least its use was limited to recipes involving lamb. Whilst its flavour makes it a wonderful herb to use with lamb there are also many other uses it can be put to. Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) from the family Labiatae, is a shrub with short (1.5cm) tough, pointed evergreen leaves similar to pine needles spaced densely on the branches. It flowers in the late spring/summer producing small delicate pale blue flowers growing in clusters. It has a strong pungent odour. As well as the green variety silver and gold striped types also exist. The green variety is ... Read the complete review

The discoveries of a New World with herbs have a powerful mystique and romance we can not deny. At times in history, the gods were pleased with herbs and evil spirits kept at bay. Herbs were used to burn as incense, to preserve meat with the addition of pepper and mostly as a base for perfumes and cosmetics as still today. Oh, the wealthy displayed herbs in their homes and guests were usually offered cinnamon coasters or muffineers to sprinkle over their food. Can you imagine today having to be rich to afford such luxury known as herbs? Which finally remind me of Rosemary, known as “the lovers’ symbol of fidelity”, being romantic as well as it ...

I have decided to do a review for one of my favourite herbs for the kitchen, the Rosemary. Rosemary Ė Rosmarinus Ė Evergreen hardy perennial ***The Plant*** Hmm I can almost smell it, itís a fantastic herb and can be used for cooking and adding to meat especially Lamb. Itís also very nice stuffed in the inside of a chicken with a few cloves of garlic and half lemon. I use Rosemary to make a rosemary flavoured olive oil, and if you have an open fire throw a few twigs of rosemary on it to make the whole room smell fantastic. Rosemary is from the Mediterranean but has been widely spread all over the ... Read the complete review

Rosemary is a small shrub / woody stemmed plant from the Mediterranean that's often grown in people's gardens as a culinary herb. It has distinctive spiky leaves - looking a bit like broad, Christmas tree needles - arranged in little bunches growing directly off the upstanding stems. Though there are trailing varieties of rosemary that'll grow horizontally along the ground, the 'classic' or natural shape is a spiky bush with upright growth habit standing sometimes as much as five feet tall. The leaves are dark green with a sort of low-key gloss to them on top, and whitish, with a very slight nap below. The essential oils that give rosemary its wonderful aromatic ..
