Mint is an aggressive growth plant. Its underground root structure spreads like a web and sends shoots up all around the parent plant. Mint is a very easy herb to grow and it will thrive in most gardens.
Mint can also be grown from seed or purchased at most garden centers and greenhouses.
If you are growing your mint plants in a hanging basket or pot, regular potting soil will be fine.
Make sure to plant the mint where it’ll get plenty of sunlight. Mint plants perform the best when they have a full day of sun, but a part-day of shade won’t kill them.
Water mint plants when the soil around the plant has dried. Typically, when the first 1/2 inch of soil is dry, the plant is ready to be watered.
Mint is a great plant to try growing. It’s an easy-care plant, so it’s perfect for beginner gardeners.
