    Like others I leave mine outside. Has been burried twice by snow and plenty of frosts so don’t think that would be an issue for yours as mine looks fine.

    Perhaps it got too dry, mine are fairly well drained, potted in compost and gravel but never dry out. Especially with all the winter rain.

    I am not sure what went wrong with your rosemary but we are in the same boat. Mine was perfectly fine (outside, in pot) before the beast from the east and looks dead now.

    I've seen more dieback on rosemary (my own and others) in the last year than ever before. Don't know why, I'm afraid. Is there a new disease around?

    I think they are relatively short lived. Here they grow in heavy clay.

    Wouldn't bother keeping in a pot. They strike very easily so you can always have back ups ready.

    Last year and the year before there were a lot of rosemary beetles about. They killed off three of my lavender bushes but fortunately didn't find the rosemary on the other side of the house.
    Endless wonder.

    Well it has got much worse so yet another casualty in my every increasing list of garden death. Been kept dry in the greenhouse all winter. No animal pee or the like. I could buy a new one but it will just end up the same. I had planted another I used to have in sandy soil and that died.
