My soil is quite heavy and clayey, but also free draining, however I have found it easy to grow rosemary. When planting, I make a hole about twice as wide and twice as deep as the root ball, then I pack a mix of soil and home made compost tightly around the root. I make my own compost which contains everything from grass clippings and vegetable peelings, to moss and upper growth from herbaceous perennials, basically anything organic and not too woody. I leave this for over a year to decay and it turns into wonderful fertile material which plants flourish in.
