Entangle- Mint??

Is your mint patch an entanglement of mint varieties? Try sinking individual pots in the ground. Be sure to leave about 2 inches of pot above ground so that mint doesn't escape. The mint will try its hardest to grow outside of the pot but if you are firm it will stay contained. If your mints grow together you will loose the uniqueness of the individual varieties and simply end up with "mint". So it's best to keep your chocolate mint away from the orange mint and separate that from the pineapple mint and don't let the spearmint or peppermint rule the roost. Instead keep them all in separate pots sunk in the ground so that watering isn't a problem.

We have spearmint in bloom in the front garden and peppermint in the back but what we have in containers is doing very well.
