Who doesn't love Rosemary?
We really do. It is one of our most used herbs and when established will fill your garden with amazing scent year after year. Lets not forget the kitchen. Rosemary is one of the most used herbs in the world for both it's flavour and health benefits.
One benefit that Rosemary is said to have, is on improving memory, although we can't think where we read that (only joking)
What's in this collection?
This is a collection of some of our most popular Rosemary plants. The collection is made up of 3 different varieties with 2 plants of each which will be labelled in the pack.
A bit more detail about Rosemary
The Rosemary 'Family': Rosemary is a woody perennial herb from the Lamiaceae family. The foliage is fragrant, evergreen and needle like, usually being a silvery green on top and whiter underneath with a strong flavour. Fresh or dried leaves are used a lot in Mediterranean cuisine and have a slightly bitter, astringent taste with a characteristic aroma complementing many foods such as stuffing, roasted meats & vegetables and are especially good when paired with barbecued foods. Rosemary can also be used as an ornamental herb as it can easily be pruned into hedges or used in topiary. Rosemary flowers are most often a deep blue but can also be pink or white depending on the variety and bloom throughout spring and summer with some varieties having very long or unexpected flowering periods.
Can I choose which varieties I get?
No, To keep this pack priced so competitive you can not choose which varieties you get but we will pick the best of the time. We do sell the varieties separately but they are more expensive.
Is this plant "garden ready"
Maybe, we prefer our plug plants (also known as starter plants) to be potted up before going into the garden. The ideal size is a 9 cm pot, but it can be slightly smaller or larger if you would prefer. In the warmer months you may get away with planting straight out, but it is probably not worth the risk.
What compost should I use?
A good quality multipurpose compost is idea for this. You can use your own compost but make sure you know that it is not too high (or low) in nutrients.
Will each variety be labelled?
Yes. you will get 3 different varieties in this collection, 2 of each type.
Will I get the plants in the picture?
Maybe, The picture is of all the Rosemary varieties we grow and more than likely you will get some of these but we will select from the best plants of the moment.
Are all of these plants Hardy?
Yes. all of the plants in this selection are hardy in the UK
What is a plug plant?

Is the plug plant in the picture the one I will get?

Our pot & plant size explained
At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers.
We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.
Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.
Starter Plant (Plug Plant)
Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
Plug Size: 6cm by 7cm. A fantastic alternative to a 9cm pot and saves on plastic too. The plants in this size are well established and give you a head start. This size is perfect for planting straight into containers and baskets as well as the garden.
Pot size: 9cm by 9-10cm. This size hold some well established plants, some of which maybe around 1 year old. We sell most of our ranges in this size and most of the plants sold in this size, are established enough to be planted straight outside.
13cm or 1 litre pot
Pot size: 12-13cm by 12-15cm Currently our largest size of plant, with the exception of our planted containers. Many of our House Plants are available in this size, as well as some special collections and varieties.
