Plant of the Month

Rosemary

Rosemary

 

This fragrant, woody perennial herb is often associated with the cooking of lamb but has beautiful flowers which can be blue, pink, purple or white.

In mythology it is said that the Greek Goddess Aphrodite had it draped around her shoulders which may explain why in the Middle Ages, Rosemary was used during Weddings and was thought to be a love charm!

Most commonly used in the Meditterranean climate it is a very hardy plant that can survive in the cooler climate of King's Gardens. If you rub the needles between your palms you can smell the fragrance.

Why not adding Rosemary to your next roast lamb?
