Herbs Fresh or Dries???

I am pondering a new recipe that calls for fresh rosemary. My question is it better than dried? Are herbs hard to grow? Is it easier to just buy them at the store,if so how much to buy at once?

Looking for Help

Often you don't have the selection if you can find them

fresh at all. Dried keep so well and there's no waste.

If using dried in a recipe that suggests fresh, use 1/3

of the amount.

Are herbs hard to grow? depends on the color of your

thumb. I kill every plant I try to grow. If you're good

with houseplants you should be ok. I've found a few

sites online that sell herb plants if you can't find them

locally. You can click me some email in my user pro-

file if you'd like the addresses.

Herbs grow like weeds!
