What is the first plant you buy when you move to another country?

We went to one of the closest stores to buy some food and I found this lovely little Rosemary bush, disguised as a small Christmas tree. Nine dollars later it was mine. It is not a bad choice to start with here in Texas. Firstly it’s an awesome herb who fits with a broad range of food, from roasts, soups to potatoes,  but its also a nice evergreen that can manage the hot summers and the alternating winter weather in Texas. Planted in your garden the Rosemary grows to a nice, fragrant shrub with light blue flowers.

It’s also one of the very few herbs that are more aromatic as fresh than dried.

Rosemary develops a large net of strong roots which is how they can manage on insufficient water over a long time, they are sun-loving and undemanding. They can take a night of frost or two, but need some garden fleece if they are exposed to cold weather over a long time.

In Norway I had this stemmed up Rosemary bush which I really hope someone will inherit now when I have moved.

All our stuff are in a shipping container somewhere and will not arrive before the end of November, so easy made food as pizza with potatoes and rosemary is a tasty dish that doesn’t need a lot of kit and preparation.

This little guy had moved in when the house was empty. He moved quickly out side again.
