How do you keep your herbs alive outside when I can't even keep them alive inside?!

No idea - my husbands the gardener here! Basically, through the winter weve sunk the pots into the soil and mulched really heavily to protect them, and then kept our fingers crossed. It hasnt always gone well - weve replaced the rosemary over the years and this year we had to get new mint. Some herbs (like basil, dill, cilantro) dont survive the winter no matter what, and we just replant every spring, though the dill and cilantro have been successfully reseeding themselves, so we wait to see how much is coming up and then plant more if we need to. This years the first with the winter garden, but Im thinking the herbs will like it very much. Well see!
