I grew a number of different herbs in a planter last summer in direct
sunlight. Sage, mint, and basil. They all thrived during the summer
but died late in the fall. ANy suggestions to prevent this from
happening this year?

Where are you? (USDA zone or location)
Basil is a frost-tender annual. It is definitely dead. Mint is a
perennial that dies down after frost, but revives (and spreads) in
spring. Sage is a perennial which varys in hardiness -- green-leafed
is hardy to zone 5.

Mint in the open will die back in winter but regrow in spring. My
sage bush stays alive but is dormant in winter. Basil, don't know if
it would stay alive longer if it was warm but just keep the seeds and
start again. :-)
