I'm planning on growing a few herbs in a pot near my back door. I've never grown herbs before, and intend to plant parsley, mint, thyme and rosemary as these are the herbs we use the most in our cooking. I might be persuaded to a couple of others too when I get to the garden centre! I know nothing about fresh herbs really - for instance, are they perennial? Once you start cutting them for use in cooking, do they grow back? As you can see, I'm a complete novice and hoping for some useful tips from all you herby experts! Many thanks.
