How to plant and grow

Planting. Mint spreads quickly and vigorously, so always grow it in well-draining soil, in a container that’s at least a foot tall and wide (and even bigger is better). Place the pot in a spot that gets full or part sun.

Watering. Water regularly, keeping soil moist but not soggy.
