Elleme's Garden


Genus: Rosmarinus.

Species: Rosmarinus officinalis.

I have one which is growing into a big gnarly old monster. I cut it back a bit to keep within some kind of order but don't do much to it. I used to have two but I got rather sick of being on rosemary beetle patrol so I took out the one which had been the most decimated by them.

Now I just keep an eye on this one - if I see any of the shiny buggers I give them short shrift. I'm a very live and let live gardener normally but the beetles are relatively new and don't have predators here - I'm just keeping the numbers down.
