Growing Mint

Mint is an invasive plant. I still love it, but I'm careful with it because I learned my lesson a few years back. Now, every Spring, I buy one plant from the green house and plant in a large three gallon pot. It grows all summer and just before frost I bring it in to have fresh mint for the Winter. It usually adapts fairly well to being in the house, as long as I water it and keep it in a sunny window.

When preparing the soil, I mix 2/3 potting soil with 1/3 garden soil and I add 1 cup of well rotted manure that I buy at the hardware store. Super easy. Just don't forget to water regularly!

It's an easy plant to grow!
