Rosemary is best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of chalk, clay, loam, or sand within an acidic, alkaline, or neutral pH balance. It is best positioned in a position of full sun. Rosemary is well suited to being planted in borders, beds and containers and suits a Mediterranean or cottage style garden. Rosemary also makes good hedging.

Ensure the soil is well-drained by amending with grit to aid in water drainage as Rosemary does not like to be sat in wet soil. Space plants around 45-60cm (18-24in) apart, depending on how dense you wish the Rosemary hedge to be.
Rosemary is drought tolerant but will need watering regularly in dry summers, particularly if they are in containers. Water when the soil is dry to the touch and be careful not to overwater as this will lead the roots to rot. Cut back stems after flowering to keep the plants compact and avoid them from becoming leggy.
It is possible to propagate Rosemary by cuttings in late spring.
