This spicy and strongly flavored mint is one of my favorites. It adds a bright dash of flavor to drinksand is a great garnishes in chocolaty desserts. It is an aggressive member of the garden so it's recommended that you find a place where its spread will be restricted, like a container.
Mint: The guaranteed success story! Mint is a great addition to the herb garden bringing a great fresh flavor to the garden along with tons of pollinators and insects. It can handle all sorts of conditions and even if it looks like it has died back a good deal just soak its root and watch it spring back! It can be a bit pushy in the garden so I tend to recommend that it be grown in containers instead of the garden beds themselves.
Growing Tips: Plant multiple plants around 6 to 8 inches apart in order to quickly develop a good stand. Keep them moist, especially as things get hot in July and August for full season production. Harvest by cutting off whole springs about 2 inches above the soil surface to allow it to resprout.
