Has anyone successfully saved French Tarragon over winter?

Every year I buy a couple of new plants, then when autumn comes I take root cuttings. These start to grow and I can keep them growing indoors for a couple of months then they die.

Has anyone successfully kept French Tarragon going indoors over winter to plant outside the following year?

The best way to overwinter French Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus 'Sativa') is to keep it outdoors, either in a container or raised bed with excellent drainage. A container is preferable, as you can move the pot to a sunny and dry spot under the roof of a porch or eaves. It is excessive winter wet, not cold temperatures, that kills off many french Tarragon plants in Winter.
If you do want to strike cuttings, do so in Summer not Winter.
