      @Charlotte Belange Hi Char, The ones I planted in the ground are perennials so I hope they will return next year: the Russian sage (which I really love!), the marjoram, the chocolate mint (really smells delicious- really spreads so I planted that in the ground, but in pots in the ground!). Those that I planted in planters I read were annuals (in my area)- thai basil, thyme, rosemary. I suppose they can be brought in for the winter. I haven't decided what to do about those because I don't have much space near a sunny window for all of those herbs. I'll have to figure it out soon :) Good luck with yours!
