I must warn you in advance: mint is very strong plant and can kill other plants in your garden by taking their territory. So it is better to plant mint in a container without the bottom to prevent it from spreading. If you grow mint indoors it should not be a problem – just plant mint in separate pots or containers. We grow mint in a small pot on the balcony and it looks like the plant is very happy there.
If you want to grow mint outdoors, then plant herb approximately 12 inches apart and keep the soil moist until the plants are established.
Please note: the plant stop growing after flowers appearance, so if you want it to continue it’s growth till autumn, you need to remove flowers.

Tip: Plant in in a summer morning position in a damp spot and add lots of organic manure for optimum leaf growth!
