Lifeshighway, The Answer Is. . .
There is a wonderful herb farm in Ohio and I have written about them several times in my blog called Mulberry Creek Herb Farm. While they no longer ship plants, their on-line catalog will give you a lot of information about mints. Papa Geno's also has a lot of information. The photo above is silver mint. Most of my other mints, peppermint in the backyard, spearmint (yes, it is a mint) in the front yard, orange mint, basil mint and pineapple mint are all in the ground. They are easily pulled out when out of bounds. I would love to have them all in containers, but we don't have room to take them in in the winter. One problem I do have with the peppermint especially that when it flowers, it does spread seeds. So I am pulling plants out across the garden to make sure that it does grow in too many places. I hope I have helped be less herbal challenged, Lifeshighway. I will take a photo of each of mine and will post them in the coming days. If you have more questions, please let me know! Hope you have all had a great day! Talk to you later.
