[Market-farming] Rosemary

I'd love to have a Pacific Northwest climate but we do not.

We grow rosemary and it needs to be cut back and mulched heavily to  
make it through our winters and I am in Southwestern Ohio.  I would  
figure that the further north the worse it does overwintering.  We  
used to pot it and bring it in  during late autumn /winter.  That  
becomes a hassle though when you are trying to grow lots of it.  Now  
its just cut back and mulch and be happy with what makes it through  
the cold.
