This fantastic plant is easy to grow but will enjoy being planted in a sunny, free draining position. Perfect for growing in a container next to the kitchen door or even better, next to your BBQ. It’s important to prune the top third of the plant regularly to ensure the plant doesn’t become leggy and woody. Cutting into the hard wood stems is not ideal so make sure you've read up on how to grow rosemary before getting carried away with your snips.

BBQ rosemary's iconic needle-like leaves, often used as skewers or scattered directly onto the grill grates, release their essential oils upon contact with the heat creating a multi-sensory experience each and every time you cook. These aromatic oils infuse the food with a fragrant and earthy essence that's synonymous with outdoor cooking, a must-have herb for the summer months. Whether you're grilling marinated meats, seafood, vegetables, or even fruits, BBQ rosemary adds a layer of complexity to the flavor profile, elevating the overall dining experience.
