Rosemary Topiary   3 comments

It’s not that difficult to make a topiary out of rosemary.  I had a young plant at the beginning of the summer.  I snipped all the shoots off the sides, only leaving the ones at the top.  I staked it to train it to grow straight and tall.  Over the summer, whenever I needed a little rosemary for cooking, I would trim it, working at a ball shape.  This photo is before I started trimming it.  Now it’s looking much better, I’ll take another photo and post it tomorrow.

  1. looks great! I am planning to plant a rosemary next year, will try this out…

  2. For a topiary, should I use a specific kind of rosemary? I have tuscan blue and one called an Italian heirloom rosemary. Nice blog 🙂
