Rosemary is traditionally worn on Anzac Day. Rosemary has particular significance for Australians as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula. The story is that all rosemary planted at the Cenotaphs are propagated from actual cuttings taken home by the soldiers.
This year will be a very different Anzac day for all of us and everyone will be celebrating in their own unique way instead of the traditional dawn service.
I popped down to the local Anzac Cenotaph and with the rosemary in flower and laden with seeds I decided to take some seeds with the intention to germinate them and next year give plants away at the next dawn service.
I have not had a lot of success germinating rosemary seeds but after a bit of research I think I might have some luck this time… however any tips will be most welcome!
