Are most herbs perennials?


I am building a raised bed to use for a real herb garden next year, instead of the haphazard way I've grown herbs so far. It will be small, only a 12x12 bed, so I want to figure out the best use of the space. I'd prefer to use only perennials, so that I don't have to replant every year. Any recommendations?


Have a great day
Basil and dill are not perennial.

Parsley is biennial.

Oregano, chives, mint, and thyme are perennial.

If you have any specific herbs you are looking at, please feel to post them.


I am not entirely sure between a perennial and an annual, but I know that carrot plants bloom and grow every year, coming into full maturity during the second year. Doesn't that make that an annual?
