  Where to plant

Where to plant Mint

 

Mint is best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of clay, loam, sand or chalk within an acidic, alkaline or neutral pH balance and rich in organic matter. It is best positioned in an area of sun or part shade. Mint is well suited to being planted in cottage and informal gardens and will happily grow in pots. Mint is a vigorous grower and can become invasive, so planting in a pot to restrict its roots will make it much easier to manage.

How to plant Mint

 

Amend the planting area with compost to improve drainage and to enrich the soil with organic matter. If planting in the ground, space the plants around 24in (60cm) apart from one another. If growing in pots, choose a pot that measures around 12in (30cm) in diameter and is deep enough for the roots to have room to grow.

How to care for Mint

 

Cut back after flowering. Make sure to cut the leaves regularly to keep the plants in their best condition and to encourage more growth. Young leaves are much more flavourful than old ones. Mint can be frozen once harvested if you wish to use the leaves later. Water regularly but be careful not to have the plants sitting in soggy soil.
