I bought 2 little Rosemary plants and i need to re-pot them. Is there any trick that I should know about Rosemary before I replant these?

Well lets just say that i would like to keep from killing it but on the other hand I was planning on eating it too. But I may have a chance on getting these little guys through the winter after all because I can create dry and sunny conditions for them.

We plant ours in the ground, for a hard winter area you would find a plant blanket good to have for putting over the bush. A mulching about 4" deep protects the roots. In New York I kept one alive by mulching and then placing a large garbage bad over the bush, filled that with leaves and tied it closed with a twist tie. The bush did very well and really took off the next spring when I released it from the "wrappings".
I bet I can do that. I never knew how good rosemary was until my wife got into using it - well - in lots of stuff. I just got to have it now.
Issue resolved. Thanks Angelika and Bryant.
