Answer: Annual herbs grow, flower, set seed and die within one growing season. These are best grown outdoors and include coriander, chervil, chives, oregano, basil and dill. Perennial herbs grow for more than one season can be taken indoors when the weather gets cold. These are the best candidates for growing inside: sweet marjoram, parsley, mint, sage, thyme and chives. For the most part, the perennial herbs won't be perennial in your harse winter climate. You can either take the perennials indoors for the winter months, or simply treat them as annuals, expecting to replace them every spring.
Enjoy your herbs!
