Grow your own tarragon from seed by sowing indoors, then transplant outdoors after last frost.  Tarragon can also be easily propagated from cuttings and will spread quickly if live stems are allowed to droop to the ground.  This herb does great in pots and requires very little maintenance – only the occasional trim to promote new growth.  In cooler climates, tarragon will die back in winter then regrow from root in the springtime.  Note that while tarragon is drought-tolerant, this hardy perennial grows faster in moist soil.
