herb garden kit

I'm thinking of buying a herb garden kit next year (still time this year?). I'm a novice and would like some advice from the group as to what I should get. I live on the east side of washington state so I have blistering summers, no rain, and cold winters.
Thanks,
Dave

for that kind of climate, buy mint to be placed in shade, thyme of various stripes, oregano, sage (only hardy varieties). That is the basic perennial herbs that will find their way in your cooking often, and are hardy . Now if you want non perennials, or herbs that will not be used in cooking, there is lots to choose from. Lavender and basil (annuals with possibility of reseeding), rosemary (to be brought in during winter), dill and parsley (also a possibility of reseeding), lemon balm (certain to reseed, good for tea). All herbs except mint in full sun, though lemon balm will tolerate shade. Group them according to watering needs (sage and lavender together for example), and they need little to no fertilizer. Once you have things growing, go ahead and plant more. You will be shocked how much herbs you are going to use if you have them handy.
