Perennial herbs take a long time to get to a meaningful size if you start them from seed, so I recommend buying healthy starts at your local nursery. You can do the same with your annual herbs, although I also seed them in trays in the hoophouse and then plant them out in the raised beds after the average last frost (around April 15th here in the Pacific Northwest). They can alternately be direct sown in the beds; it just means the herbs won’t get the head start that the hoophouse provides. (Or you can try seed sowing in the snow.)
