Rosemary is an essential kitchen garden herb for Mediterranean cuisine lovers, and they look fabulous too.  Upright varieties are great for elegant topiary or hedging, while creeping Rosemary is a great way to hide the weeds!  Both varieties are good additions in coastal gardens.

Urban Bounty Rosemary are sold as established plants in a 1.5 litre pot.  We sell two blue-flowering Rosemary varieties:

  • Chef's Choice
    • A creeping variety that is perfect for trailing over walls.  It grows to roughly 50cm and 40cm wide. 
  • Tuscan Blue
    • An upright variety with deep blue - violet flowers.  It grows  up to 2m high and 0.5m wide. 

What is Rosemary?  

Rosemary is an aromatic Mediterranean herb with loads of flavour. In medieval times it was used at weddings to symbolise fidelity, and at funerals for remembrance.

The gorgeous purple-blue flowers of the Tuscan Blue look stunning in a hedge or topiary, or in a pot.  With its high oil content and slightly spicy flavour, the Chef's Choice is ideal for cooking and is a great ground cover in hot, dry locations.   

Culinary Uses for Rosemary 

Rosemary goes perfectly with roast potatoes and lamb, or grilled peaches with honey.  It adds delicious depth of flavour to vegetarian quiche too! 

Growing Conditions - Rosemary 


This easy-care herb is ideal for new gardeners as it is a drought and wind tolerant plant that needs little attention. Once established, it will thrive with the occasional deep watering.  Rosemary's only real requirements are well drained (slightly acidic) soil and sun. 

Plant Rosemary in spring or autumn, but be prepared to prune it each year so it doesn't get too woody.  Rosemary can be planted all year round in the upper North Island, but doesn't cope well with harsh frost and wet conditions.  Rosemary shouldn't be planted near Tomatoes, but Beans, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Chillies and Sage make good companion plants.  

        We offer a replacement guarantee

        To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

        What will postage cost?

        Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

        Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

        If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.)

        How often do you dispatch?

        To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

        How do you package your products?

        We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


        Where do you deliver to? 

        We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

        South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

        While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote:  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

        We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options:

        Do you deliver to post office boxes?

        Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
