Why is my potted rosemary dying although it has flowers

Could it be too much fertiliser or seasol - it used to thrive on 'neglect' what are normal conditions for growing rosemary?

Rosemary plants don't require much fertilising and will, as you say, thrive on neglect. If your shrub has been over fertilised or over watered, it will suffer and as a survival mechanism, will flower before dying. Rosemary is a mediterranean plant, it thrives in hot, dry conditions, enjoys sunny aspects and well drained soils. High humidity is not favoured by the plant and many shrubs in the Sydney area have been killed off this summer. Keep applying the seaweed extract in hope your plant will recover.
