Rosemary is a very popular plant and herb. “It’s used for so many things — tea, tea for bathing, kabob sticks. It’s supposed to be good for medicinal purposes. It’s the plant of remembrance,” Williams says. For grilling kabob sticks, Williams says you can cut one of the stems about eight or ten inches long. “It doesn’t hurt it to prune it back. Just take the outer bark off and it makes a pretty little stick,” he says. Rosemary is easy to grow once you get it established, Williams says. Just make sure you offer good drainage. “Rosemary is a very hardy plant but you don’t want to put it anywhere wet,” he says.
