That's huge. You aren't in texas are you? Do you prune it and then harvest/dry the rosemary for your cooking? I can't grow rosemary, I kill it.

Yes, we use it for cooking but often we'll take a whole branch and throw it in the fire pit for the aroma.

My wife bought a plant from a nursery, we planted next to garage which is sheltered, grows all year round, we pick and dehydrate for storing or pick fresh as I need.

Both Roadfix and I are in So Cal, although I'm further north. Giant rosemary bushes are so common around here, they are used for freeway landscaping.

The slender branches are great used as skewers for the barby too.
