Rosemary: One of the most useful of all herbs. Drought-tolerant, endures hot sun, but needs a very well-drained soil with lime. Seed germination is rather slow. Wonderful in almost any cooked dish, but especially on roasted meats and potatoes. A sprig or two in a bottle of olive oil or vinegar is an easy way to add savor to meals, and a fine gift. Aromatic leaves valued for potpourri, baths, herb wreaths. Medicinal: circulation, anti-aging, restorative, memory.
