the mint express
Mint is a great kitchen window sil plant as long as it meets some sunlight and is well-watered. Mint has roots which can be broken off and placed either directly in the ground or in pots. It prefers partial shade and water retentive soil and little maintenance is needed. A twice yearly feeding with bonemeal will keep it happy. Keep using its twigs and leaves in your cooking and soon it’ll swell and fill the pot. Given half a chance, it has the promise to take over a garden. Summer is a good time to try, bring mint seedlings and get going. Coriander could be the next to follow your mint success.
