heh,Without readingthe caption, my first thought was, "Basil!"You have a very nice site.Cordially,t
Just make sure you plant it in an enclosed area - mint is very invasive. I pulled so much mint out when we bought this house. I love it but it was out of control.
Mint is high on my list when I finally - some day - get a garden. Until then I grow it on the balcony but I think they need a rather large pot to like it. I have read that if you plant the mint in the garden inside a bucket with the bottom cut out (you dig it down, obviously) it doesn´t spread too bad. Oh, and you can grow Jerusalem artichokes too and other lovely things.
Thanks for the planting tips! I'm leaning towards having all my herbs in large wooden "pots on legs"... and I really want to have rhubarb. I need to learn way more about gardening, that's for sure. I was considering asparagus - but it takes three years before you get anything, and I'm so impatient!
Yes, keep the plants in pots, unless you are willing to spend a lot of time in the garden. But look for different flavours of mint - like chocolate & pineapple. Pennyroyal mint makes a great groundcover between stepping stones or in a little area too small to mow.
Hej!I'm miss piperita from Italy. I love mint too (in fact "piperita" means "peppermint" in Italian), it has a very fresh taste which makes it good expecially on summer. I like peppermint shampoo too! :-)Nice blog.Hejda
