Mint, also known as common mint, is popular for tea and as a culinary herb. Mint spreads aggressively through shallow underground runners, so growing in containers or having a containment plan isn’t a bad idea. Pick mint regularly for better production by either harvesting individual leaves or cutting whole stems on established plants. Cut the plants back to the ground for the fall for healthier and more prolific plants the following year. Again, they really like to spread, so consider yourself warned.
