It’s the season of growing and enjoying the hot weather! What better way than planting your own mint leaves and being able to use it at your own leisure. The perfect plant to add to any recipe or to add into your lemonade for a nice and crisp taste of freshness!
The best way to grow your mint would be in an area that has a little bit of shade or protection from direct sunlight and to have the soil light so it can drain out well. When planting you mint, have it spaced out enough so that there is about 2 feet in between each plant. This gives it enough room to grow and it can grow to be 1 to 3 feet tall.
When taking care of you mint, the roots don’t grow too deep, therefore it is really easy for you to pull out. It benefits a lot from pruning constantly. The plant doesn’t require much attention and care. Try using mulch to keep the soil moist. Just like every plant, you will need to keep an eye on it for any pests and diseases.
You can even cut the stem of the mint and give it to a friend to grow their own as well! It can even grow in a cup of water. These plants grow pretty quickly and you can plant as many as 3 times in one growing season. The great thing about this is you can easily transfer the plant indoors as well to keep growing it during the cold seasons!
