    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg The May 2017 - finally heathy and vigorous. I pruned for structure and pulled down some branches.
    I'm glad to see other bnuts posting up their Rosemary's

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Here I've added more wire and placed all the primary, and most of the secondary branches. I scraped and carved the dead wood as well, nature did most of the work for me.
    Pruned and pinched the strong, soft summer shoots that grew after the work done in May.
    Flowers are much more vibrant in person, these pics are a bit over exposed.

    I just pulled a straggler out of a 90% shade location and potted it in basic garden soil. It has recovered from the shock at this point. Now I need to see how much is keepable

    I have one too but it's not bug and nowhere as nice as yours. I made it into a raft.
    Mine did not flower this year. I'm hoping it will next year.

    Certainly the best rosemary I've seen. Great use of its natural characteristics in that trunk.

    Very nice! I had one like yours a couple years ago until a wooden backdrop I was using to take photos fell off my stand and broke it in two. Here is one I've been working on. I need to update the photo though because it's much fuller now.

    I've got four growing in the ground to bulk up and four, oh wait, make that three in pots. I just cut some off the ones in the ground whenever I need some. We love lamb and it goes great with it.

    I do cook with the cuttings. I actually kept them in water in the kitchen and several rooted, just planted them this morning. This variety has short leaves and compact growth. No clue what the name is...

    Yes I think that would look very good. But I think it will take several repottings over the next 5-7 years to get it into a proper pot. I think we've all heard that Rosemary can be intolerant of heavy root work. I recently read that the fiberous roots can be cut back with little concern; it's the reduction of large roots that may stress or kill a Rosemary. If any bnuts have direct experience with this please share.
    Thanks in advance
