Growing Your Own Mint

Have you tried Mint Tea or had a refreshing bowl of Mint Frozen Treats? Probabilities are that you may have if you desire to produce your own mint. Growing your mint is usually a fabulous supply of continual minty goodness and will help save some money actually.

Figuring out how to grow mint most likely is the easiest things you will ever do with gardening. Herbs are very sturdy crops, having said that the mint type is considerably more durable. It really is extremely difficult to wipe out a mint plant. If truth be told, you need to be extremely careful or your delightful new plants may take over the entire back yard garden. Most everyone will say to keep your mint herbs inside of planting pots instead of giving them wide open ground to start on.

I have discovered three choices to starting to learn to grow mint: beginning with seed, cultivating by using clippings, and also planting adult mint plants. Every individual method is reasonably simple, it really depends upon who you already know or what season it is. Should you have a friend that already has a well-established mint plants you will have a lot less difficult effort ending up with a cutting possibly two from them than you'd beginning from seeds. However, if you are getting started with your own mint flowerbed whenever mature plants are to be found in stores you'll be sipping at Mint Teas almost immediately.

How to start by seed

If you can't get mature plants or cuttings from a friend, starting mint using seed is the only real way to go. Don't worry too much, this isn't tough in the least bit, it just takes a little more time when compared to the other available choices.

Start preparing the space that you'll want to place your new mint in by simply tilling or perhaps turning all of the soil. There will be more satisfying results having a recently prepared location. Mint also enjoys to have fertilizer in the soil, if you have some, go on and just try adding it throughout the vegetable garden.

You'll want to hold off until the earth has warmed prior to when you plant your mint seeds. Once warmer, plant all the plant seeds by scattering all of them on the prepared gardening area as well as cover all of them gently with ¼" of top soil. For even greater results which provide the brand new seedlings a great boost, you can use seed starter to cover the mint seeds. While you are trying to learn the best way to cultivate mint, you ought to give yourself every advantage. Succeeding the very first time is really important.

Dampen the top soil by showering a fine mist, just make sure that you don't wash away all of the plant seeds. It is crucial to have the spot damp though not soggy.

As soon as you start seeing some of the new plants, that is the time for you to thin the herbs. Pull out the newest plants until they are approximately 1 foot a part. You might be amazed at how fast the mint herbs blanket this location.

Ways to start using clippings

One of the best technique to get started on mint plants originates from cuttings from a neighbor. If they've any kind of mint herb that has sprigs 6" or possibly longer it is really a breeze. This choice is best used in the summer time seeing that is when all of the plants are already in full swing of growing.

Get a clipping around 6" in length. For best results, get a few just in case one doesn't take. Strip off the majority of the leaves at the base of your sprig and then place in a glass of normal water. Whenever you start seeing little plant's roots form, you can put the rooting sprig firmly into potting soil and keep moistened.
