Message: True, plant them in a bottomless bucket or a stout wooden container, otherwise you will be inundated.

Message: It's a shame you say there are only about a half dozen mints worth cultivating. You mentioned Chocolate Mint which does indeed taste like chocolate-mint, most definitely worth trying! There are so many varities that are worth trying too. Have you ever tasted the freshness of Orange Mint, Lemon Mint, or Lime Mint? The standard Spearmint and Peppermint are great but there's also Apple Mint and Grapefruit Mint which aren't so great raw but when used for culinary dishes really come into their own! And what about Pineapple Mint and Corsican Mint? Both very lovely! Not to mention Banana Mint, Moroccan Mint, Lavender Mint, Ginger Mint... many types also have a varigated variety as well! There is truely a mint for virtualy every taste! But the one thing they all do have in common is that shallow, invasive root system.

Hi, I just invented a way of containing my mint and getting rid of pesky estate agents' signs [realters to the colonials] in one swell foop. Dig as thin a trench as you can and bury them in the shape of the containment area you want leaving 3" (7.5cm) above ground. Better still; get your offspring to do it.

Message: Hi Vannie!
This might be too late, but it depends where you live really. If you live somewhere with a REAL winter, such as in the Midwest of America I'd say no. The frost, snow, lack of sunlight, and cold will pretty much do to mint what it does to every other plant in your garden.
However, if you live somewhere like California (like me) then sure thing. As long as you can give them full sun and plenty of water they will be happy to grow and grow.
Mint is easy to find at any garden store, such as Armstrong's or Home Depot.
Actually, if you want to grow mint in pots (like myself) you can grow them year round indoors (such as in a conservatory or near a large window with light). Just know that even if you start off with a small mint plant, the roots will quickly overtake the pot, so you'll probably want to just start off with a large pot. If not, the mint will get all leggy and not stay full, bushy, and beautiful.

Message: Question about mint plants... I have a healthy chocolate mint plant in a container(OMG! it really does smell and taste like choc-mint too!). I have brought cuttings into the house and put them in vases of water. After 5-7+ days, they drop these little black seed-like balls (no bigger than poppy seeds)? Are these seeds the plant is dropping? They are not on the bottom of the seaves when i bring them in, but I have seen them outside below the potted mint and on other mint plants too. They seem like too many to be bug droppings-plus I washed the stems and leaves when i cut them to bring in. Can you let me know what they might be? Thanks much-terri ~: )

Message: My 10 year old mint plants were demolished, leaves eaten, webs at the base. It looks like Gypsy moth infestation, but I am in California. The eaten leaves happened quickly, and now there are lots of little moths flying around. I live in a forest at 5,200 feet. Any ideas?
