About the Author

Author Bertha Reppert was the founder and owner of The Rosemary House, Inc., a well known herb and spice shop located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, since 1968. Her book Growing Your Herb Business was based on over 25 years of experience at The Rosemary House purveying herbs and spices, and it captures her dream of turning a hobby into a profitable business. Bertha was an instructor for an Herbs 101 course at a Pennsylvania Community College, was a contributing editor to The Herb Quarterly, and wrote for The New York Times and Rodale's Organic Gardening as well. She was the first honorary member of the Heartland Herb Society Group, a member of the Herb Society of America, President Emeritus of the Penn-Cumberland Garden Club, and life member of the Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania, among many others. After she retired, Bertha wrote, taught, and lectured on her experience. Bertha was born in Reading, Pennsylvania. She was married for 47 years to her husband, Byron, who was former mayor of Mechanicsburg. They had four daughters. Bertha passed away in June of 1999 at the age of 83.

The Storey Country Wisdom Bulletins are 32 page pamphlets which consistently provide a wealth of information for the absolute beginner and the experienced practitioner alike. They go into sufficient detail for the average beginner to be successful in accomplishing the subject of the pamphlet and they include many helpful tips and ideas for the more experienced.
"Growing & Using Rosemary" by Bertha Reppert covers a range of topics like drainage, cultivation and propagation, harvesting and preserving rosemary as well as home remedies and a wealth of cooking ideas and recipes. There also are discussions of its antioxidant properties, the historical and religious uses of rosemary, a listing of the varieties of rosemary and a list of seed suppliers. Although I have raised rosemary for several years I found this pamphlet to be both informative and useful. The recipes are great.
I have never been disappointed in a Storey Country Wisdom Bulletin and most are part of one of Amazon's 4-for-3 promotion. Eligible products include select Books and Home & Garden items.

It's like a Pamphlet or a Free, Small Catalog. Not enough information on this, so called - " Book."
You better off doing your research online, buy or plant rosemary. Not worth buying.
