Keep Mint in Containers! 🪴 #shorts

#herbs #gardening #vegetablegarden Keep Mint in Containers! 🌱Mint (Mentha) thrives in full sun to partial shade. Plant in rich, well-draining and moist soil. It is a very prolific plant with resilient rhizomes that will send out runners horizontally. If allowed, mint will take over an area in the garden, so it’s best to keep mint in containers. I put the pots on gravel and pavers to prevent runners and roots from rooting to the ground. Make sure to trim it back regularly to promote healthy new growth. It’s a great addition to home gardens as it said to repel mosquitoes, fleas, ants and moths, and attracts pollinators if left to blossom. Prune back spent flowers ASAP to prevent self-sowing and spreading, (not all mint plants produce seeds). Mint is hardy to zone USDA 5, but some varieties tolerate temperatures down to -35 F or zone 3. Some medicinal and health benefits of mint include aids in digestion, relieves flatulence, indigestion, boosts immune system, has antibacterial properties, relieve headaches, toothaches, helps with cold symptoms and makes a calming and soothing tea…just to name a few! Make sure to do your own due diligence and consult with your physician before consuming any herbs for medicinal purposes.💚🌱
