Thought I'd plant one of our new (well not so new any more we bought the things like six weeks ago) rosemary plants in the front garden today.  The instructions said it liked a well drained soil.  So epic annoyance when I dug out a place for it, and it is just *clay* :(

So the whole front garden is going to need a lot of work if I want plant more herbs there ...

Our last rental place had an amazing bush of it too, which made me think I'd be able to do ok at growing it here in Canberra :)

We have two rosemary plants here and they are growing in pretty ordinary soil. The second one was a branch that started developing roots when it was covered by tanbark. I stuck it in a piece of ground never expecting much, and now we have two plants.

awesome! :) Yeah woody plants are usually a little harder to propagate than softer-stemmed plants, so that's pretty cool :)
