We always recommend planting mint in a container so that it
does not take over your garden. A long, shallow container, like the
below, makes a perfect home for these rampant runner rogues. And, while
beneficial insects love mint
flowers, some mints make seeds that can sprout and come up without you
noticing, so keep an eye on those flowers!
Tightly pack a glass jar with mint and cover with brandy. After it stands
for 2 to 3 weeks, strain it through a muslin bag. Take this brandy and add
it to fresh herbs and more brandy and keep repeating until you have enough
to use and the taste suits.
Mint flowers are also very useful and any of these mints, except
Pennyroyal, would make nice additions to our
Edible Flower Herb Garden Six Pack.
