Rosemary 'Arp'(Salvia rosmarinus 'Arp') Previously Rosmarinus officinalis 'Arp') Herb in 1 Litre Pot

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is absolutely essential in a culinary herb garden. It is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant evergreen needle-like leaves, and is native to the Mediterranean region, and as such, prefers a light, sandy soil, which will fully satisfy its meagre feeding needs. Having said that, Rosemary herb is tolerant of most soil conditions as long as they are not water-logged. True to its origins, Rosemary herb prefers sunny and sheltered conditions. It will stand frosts if conditions are not windy and wet as well.

Rosemary 'Arp'  was originally found growing in Arp, Texas, hence the name and was developed and introduced for its excellent hardiness through a cold winter. The abundant foliage has the classic Rosemary scent  with a hint of citrus .Rosemary 'Arp' is one of the most decorative herbs and is well worth growing for its appearance alone, as it can reach heights of 1.2m if left for long enough. Rosmarinus 'Arp' will produce small, pale blue flowers in late spring, creating a beautiful display.  Rosemary 'Arp' is very attractive to bees and other pollinating insects. It can also be grown as an informal dividing hedge, great in the vegetable garden where it is said to deter Carrot root fly, will need regular pruning for this.

If left unpruned Rosemary can become straggly and untidy so should be pruned after flowering to keep it compact.  As a guide, prune after the first main flush of flowers. Regular picking of the leaves especially the tips of the branches for cooking acts as an ongoing pruning regime and helps keep the plant bushy and compact.

    Great packaging, suspect fungal issue

    Posted by Carl J. on 21st Jun 2023

    Plants (all 4) were packaged and delivered fantastically, however in closer inspection of the leaves nearer the soil, I can see the plant seems to be suffering from some type of fungal problem leaving white blotches on the leaves. I could be wrong but that's what it looks like to me (I'm experiencing the same issue in my garden and is the reason I got new plants) so a bit disappointed to see they're already suffering from something I'd hoped they'd be more resilient against. I'll keep them going and see how they get on
