My rosemary plant, which is growing very well, has alot of ‘rust’ colour on the leaves. What could be the problem & are they safe to eat?

This could be soil related, or possibly an insect such as suckers or greenfly.

Check its leaves for insects. The stem tips are probably free of bugs and okay to use.

If it is soil related, it might have been a bit dry or the soil is a bit hungry. Try feeding it in the spring next year with garden compost or general fertiliser.
