Photo of Growing Mint

This is picture of mint I have in my flower beds. I like to make mint tea with it, winter or summer. Very good.

When planting mint, be sure to put it where it is easily contained, such as in a bed between the house and a sidewalk, because it can become very invasive in the garden! It sure is nice to have, though!

I was given some Spearmint and also Peppermint but I didn't realize that it was so very invasive. It took half of my vegetable bed now I can't seem to get rid of it. I am going to plant some in a contaner so it does not take over any more.

I grew mint at my last house and OH MY GOODNESS is it invasive!! It has a tubers root system which means it spreads like wildfire... But I really did love the way it smelled and tasted... Good Luck!

I am going to try this, in a container.

Thank you for the inspiration.

The first time I planted mint it took over most of my yard! No one told me how invasive it was! LOL I just moved to TN and I'm going to grow it in containers. There is nothing like cutting some fresh mint for leg of lamb or for making mint tea!
