How to Revive an Old Rosemary Bush

melanie_ramsden added on September 23, 2015 | Answered

I have a 40 year old Rosemary, which is about a foot high. It hasn't been doing very well, and it's dry and woody. It's the end of winter here. Should I cut it right back and hope for the best? Does it need fertilising? Thanks Melanie

They do prefer a soil with a ph of 6.o to 7.0
