Most of the vegetables that we buy from the supermarket, or plant regularly are annuals. That means that they typically only live for one season and then need to be planted again. Think of all the work involved in sowing seeds and raising seedlings year after year. Perennial plants live for several seasons. They may die back over winter, but they will regrow from roots without having to start again from seed. This means that they get a head-start and may produce more over the entire season.
