Is it possible to buy a starter assortment of herbs to grow, maybe buy from an on-line company that's trusted?

Never mind=== I found out that Plant Ranch Nursery here has everything.

I recommend to call your county agricultural extention agent. Many have classes where you can get guidance for your area on just what is growable when and how to do it.

If you have a neighbor with an herb garden, it might be possible to get starts of all sorts of things without having to pay money. Usually gardeners are friendly folk and there's usually enough abundance to share. Especially if you offer to help weed in exchange for plant starts.

I have had the best luck growing basil and sage. They seemed to do very well in zone 5. I also like having these to use in cooking as well. Sage is great with chicken.

You pretty much can't kill chives, parsley, thyme, mint. The few things that don't overwinter (basil, etc.), I just buy plants.
