Pruning Rosemary

Are there any special requirements/techniques for pruning a rosmarinus officinalis [Rosemary]?



well I don't know if there is any particular way of pruning this plant, but I just chop all mine back to wherever I need it, It never seems to bother and grows again like topsy! my favourite is to chop off a few bits at a time,tie it together with string hang it over the bath and run the very hot water over it, wonderful to lie there and breath in that fantastic aroma!
