Growing Mint for Medicinal Health Benefits Indoors and Outdoors
Mint is quite the invasive little plant if you just plop it in your garden. It will take over everything and be sprouting up between your toes when you aren’t looking. To avoid this, keep mint planted in pots, whiskey barrels, or create a barrier so that the tiny roots hang out where they are supposed to. Those crawling roots will have you pulling out your hair if you don’t.
As mint flowers, cut for bouquets, use in tea, or do something clever with them, because all those little seeds will be everywhere. Mint is very prolific and will grow under almost any condition.
Mint has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food. Mint is great for allergies, breast feeding, colds, indigestion, IBS, pain relief, mouth ulcers, and stomach ulcers.
Grab some Mint seeds here and sprinkle them in a container. You’ll need to keep their invasive little roots away from freeloading in your garden, or you’ll be growing nothing but mint in a year or two.
