Overwintering Mint Grown in Containers

I want to grow mint in a container outdoors above ground, but I'm concerned about winter storage. There is no room in the apartment, will it winter in a shed with protection? If so, what steps can be taken?

Possibly. Maybe nestle the pot in a bin of straw or rags for extra insulation?

Do you have room for a 4-inch pot on the windowsill this winter? Mint is very easy to root. I'd suggest you hold a cutting over inside the first winter as backup till you know if the shed storage will be sufficient.

It's been my experience you can't kill mint. That's why I keep mine in a container too. It just takes on a life of it's own and look out!
