"BBQ Rosemary. Some plants have Latin names that make us chuckle, this one is ‘Rosmarinus officinalis 'Barbeque’’ - it does exactly what it says on the tin!
When you experiment with this variety you will see that the flavour is a fun mix. You will recognise traditional, fragrant and vaguely sweet Rosemary flavour but this is coupled with more than a hint of woodsmoke. The first time that you smell this variety you might just get a hint of it. But once you start cooking with variety the wood smoke flavour will come through very strongly!
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 1/3 of the plant regularly to ensure the plant doesn’t become leggy and woody. Cutting into the hard wood stems is not ideal."
