The Q&A Archives: Rosemary (culinary variety)

Question: I was born in Toscany where the Rosmary grows in bushes and it is used for a variety of cooking.
Can I grow Rosemary as a perennial in my garden?
Thank you

Answer: Francesco,

Yes you can. It needs full sun and a well drained soil. Soggy conditions and repeated sprinkling of the foliage are detrimental. You may also need to mix a little lime into the planting are if a soil test indicates calcium levels are low.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
