Sow rosemary seeds from March to May, in pots or trays on the surface of moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost. Place in a propagator at 16 - 20C (60F) or seal inside a polythene bag until after germination. Germination of rosemary seeds tends to be erratic and usually takes 12-40 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into trays or 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.

When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise rosemary plants to outdoor conditions prior to transplanting them outdoors in any well drained soil in full sun at a distance of 60cm (2") apart.

Rosemary is undemanding and requires little aftercare. Prune lightly in late spring to maintain an attractive shape.

Culinary note: Rosemary goes well with lamb and chicken. Add Rosemary to tomato soup and stews. Rosemary tea is said to help headaches, colic and colds.
