My wife wants me to grow her some mint. I have a 28 x 38 wood box and would like any advise on the way to go, would 5 gal. buckets be better ?
Thank you in advance.
What do you mean by divide the plant? The mint I have is going on its 3rd year...maybe 4th. I'm amazed its still going really. Do you mean you cut them down the middle? Ot just cut the bottom of and fill in soil and let it grow more roots?imafan26 wrote: Mints in containers will eventually strangle themselves. I lift the mint out of my hanging baskets when they look really full and check the roots. If the roots are winding around the pot, I know it is time to take a bread knife to it and divide the plant.
