Miss Jessop Rosemary
Pot Size : 1L
It is easy to spot the difference between a Miss Jessop Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) and other rosemary varieties due to the upward plumes of its branches. Otherwise known as ‘Miss Jessop’s Upright’ Rosemary, the name originates from horticulturist Edward Augustus Bowles after his friendly neighbour Miss Jessop provided a cutting of the plant.
This herb is very easy to maintain and will make a great addition to any kitchen garden. Buying an expertly grown herb plant makes the process even easier, as this rosemary has had the best start in life from our sustainable UK glasshouse!
With a full height and spread up to 1.5 metres this upright rosemary will prefer a spot in full sun but with enough shelter to protect it from strong wind and rain. It will also grow well in poor and well drained soil.
The sprigs can be harvested all year round offering a delightful, fragrant taste to any dish. Once fully grown, this herb will flower from Spring to Summer but should be pruned after to encourage a better yield.
ENJOY: Aromatic leaves used to flavouring roasted vegetables and meats or add to drinks (try a sprig in gin!).

What is the difference between our Rosemary plants?
The most commonly known Rosemary grows to a wide spread with a low height and provides the classic taste that can be across a variety of dishes. In comparison, our Green Ginger Rosemary offers a strong hint of ginger to the taste of the herb. Finally, the Miss Jessop upright Rosemary variety can grow to a height up to 1.5 meters and has longer needle-like leaves that makes it perfect for harvesting.
