What are rosemary plants used for and are they good in a home garden?

Rosemary plants are very easy to grow in the right areas. A small plant can grow quickly and fill an area. They are incredibly low maintenance plants too. They make excellent garden fillers, and low growing barriers between a yard and the sidewalk. When rosemary gets really old you may need to trim it back to keep the branches thinner, or prune it back on occasion, but for the most part it takes care of itself. Rosemary plants do not require excess amounts of water either so they are a good plant to grow in a garden designed for low water consumption. They are wonderful members of any herb garden too. The rich aromatic oils of a rosemary plant are easy to release. Just rub a rosemary branch between the plants of your hand and then smell your hands. Rosemary oil is very pungent. Cut rosemary is wonderful in flower arrangements too and good as a natural air freshener in the house. You can grow small rosemary plants indoors too. Rosemary adds a fresh and rich flavour to foods. It is particularly good on meats like chicken, pork and beef which can stand up to the strong flavour. You can put sprigs of rosemary in a grill or barbecue on the meats as they cook. Rosemary is also good in many soups and sauces and blends well with other spices. When rosemary plants bloom they produce small purple flowers on each branch. When you plant them be aware that they do attract a lot of bees while they are blooming. Mama Nono
