Growing Rosemary

View the Rosemary page

Hello... I wanted to do a mass planting of lavender and rosemary with 5 or so kangeroo paws in a corner. I was hoping that because both lavender and rosemary were from the Mediterranean area, this would work. Do I follow the 'rules' for planting rosemary, for lavender. Do you happen to know if the kangaroo paw would be okay amongst them?

Have for 8 years had lavender and rosemary alongside each other with no problems. Bees love their flowers. Never had any success with kangeroo paws neither did my neighbours, it must be our soil. Live in Leichhardt, sydney and we also don't have any luck with azealeas.
