Are fresh herbs better than dried?

I use quite a lot of dried herbs for cooking but I notice they seem to lose their flavour after a while. Is it better to always use fresh herbs?

Herbs are best used when fresh as some nutritional minerals, vitamins, essential oils and other medicinal and health properties are lost when dried.

Pohlmans range of fresh sleeved and unsleeved Hidden Valley Herbs are available in supermarkets and nurseries and are perfect to keep on the kitchen bench so that you will always have fresh herbs right at your fingertips!
