Mint

I bought a bunch of mint for the mushroom challenge and it was starting to wilt before I could use it. I cut off the ends and stuck it in a glass of water. Took the leaves off I needed and spaced out on it. Tonight I took a good look and it's grown about 2 inches and it has rooted. Trust me when I say I have a brown thumb...will I be able to plant this out side when it gets warmer? I do have a couple of pots out there I try to grow flowers in off and on. Does mint need shade or sun?

Yes Fi, but plant it in a pot, mint is a right bugger to control it grows better and faster than weeds.

What Bolas said..IN A POT!!!!!! A large one. If it escapes and takes root in your yard you will have a very hard time getting rid of it.

Not my yard, think my landlord would disown me? We had the birdseed fiasco a couple of years ago...yard was sure green right there!

I have two pots, one on each side of our window, on the small patch of concrete called a patio. It gets lots of hot sun...I'll just have to remember to water them.

Thanks, Bolas...pot it is. I'm not taking any bets on how long it takes me to kill it!

I bet mine doesn't make it outside...we are still getting daily snow, so I have to nurture it inside for a while still.
