  2. I love the taste of fresh tarragon in recipes. It grows well in our Maine garden…each year when the snow melts, it is one of the first green sprouts peaking up out of the ground.

    • I have some dried and it stays quite strong for some time, so it is worth looking for it in the stores if you can find some 🙂

  5. Where would I find tarragon if I wanted to grow it? Does it tend to spread, or can it be kept in a garden without too much worry about it taking over?

    • You don’t need to worry about it and it will not spread. Mine has grown back every year for the past 7 years and I really do nothing more than water it. I got mine from a local nursery 🙂
