We see potted rosemary Christmas trees (about two feet high) at Costco during the holiday season. Then you have a multi-purpose plant-decoration and food.

I got one of those about 3 years ago! I decorated it with tiny little Christmas ornaments - it was the cutest little thing, and my house smelled so good every time I walked in.

Unfortunately, it only lived about 2 years. I think I overwatered it. I did get a lot of use out of it as far as cutting off sprigs for cooking, though.

Refrigerating it is an important detail you left out. But here's some research-based information: http://fyi.uwex.edu/safepreserving/2...gars-and-oils/

Co-incidentally, I picked up some french tarragon while shopping today and will be making tarragon vinegar when I've been out to get the cider vinegar tomorrow.

They plant rosemary that become huge bushes between the multicolored blooming Oleander in the median strip of the freeway that leads from out here in the Heritage Valley to the ocean. It's a beautiful drive, and smells heavenly with the windows down. It never gets artificially watered and it's doing fine, even in our terrible drought. That should tell you how much water it really needs.

Rosemary is my second to last favorite herb, the last being tarragon that I can't stand at all.

I have read that people are starting to bonsai with rosemary.

Unless it is a cactus, I use the knuckle rule for all plants. Stick your finger into the dirt down to your first knuckle. If the dirt feels dry, water.

During my catering days I would use rosemary stems as skewers for cubes of fish or prawns, brush them with a small amount of oil and grill them. We would serve them on the "skewer". It added a really nice flavour to the fish.
