Grow you own Rosemary for good health
Many good health benefits. My Mom grew one in her garden.

I like it on my chops as a spice. Can use it on the skin and even drink it as a tea.

Re: Grow you own Rosemary for good health
Just to add a few things.

• If you live in an area with very moist/wet soil, consider planting it in a pot. Otherwise the roots which need to breathe will 'drown' and' die - and with them the plant.

• You can also grow Rosemary from a sprout taken from another plant. Wrap the base in a cotton towel and keep it slightly moist and in a sunny place until small roots form. Then put it in soil.

• If you live in an area with very cold winters, keeping the soil completely dry makes it more likely that the plant survives. Otherwise, if the moisture in the soil freezes, it will damage the roots.

• Rosemary loves chalk, so put some handfuls of eggshell into the soil.

• The less you water it and the more sunlight and heat the plant gets, the more intense the essential oils get. However, watch out not to let it dry out too much.

• In temperate climate zones Rosmary tends to grow rather quickly, so when planting in a pot make sure the pot is big enough to provide room for several years of growth. Rosemary doesn't like to be replanted.

• Breeds from Southern Europe usually are the most robust and tasty ones. So if you're traveling there and see a big, healthy bush don't hesitate to cut off some branches, wrap them in a moist cloth and take them home. If you don't let the branches dry out, I'd say they'll still be fine after about two weeks.

• If you already have a bush, do not ever cut into old wood! Some plants never recover from such damage.

Re: Grow you own Rosemary for good health
I make rosemary chicken twice a month. 2 large chickens.

I just go to the garden, snip 2 large twigs of rosemary
slide one each into the chicken cavity,salt, pepper, garlic, onion.

"No Liquid & no turning over the chicken"

Bake 350 for 3 hours in a black covered roaster pan.

Chicken falls of the bone and the rosemary make the entire house smell great.
