Many Mints: Tips for Growing Mint


| April/May 2009


• Mint will tolerate most any average garden soil. It thrives with damp soil and full sun, although it will tolerate some shade.

• Never grow different mints in the same bed, as they will grow together and lose their distinctive flavors.

• Keep them separated, or grow different varieties in pots on your patio.

• Mints can be quite invasive in the herb garden, so growing different varieties in pots or containers is the safest way to keep them separate.



• Mint attracts few pests, doesn’t need fertilizer and has the best flavor if trimmed every two or three weeks—use the newest, best leaves for the kitchen.
