Easy and Prolific

5 out of 5 stars Apr 9, 2020
I started these mint seeds last spring. They grew prolifically in a pot and over-wintered well in my minimally heated sun-room. It got pretty leggy, but I trimmed it back hard this spring and I'm acclimating it to being back outside. It seems like it is going to do just fine. I'm looking forward to adding it to tea, water and burgers (yes, it is really good in a Greek-style burger) again this year.
