MINT

Botanical Name

Mentha Cordifolia.

Nickname

Mint.

Birthplace

Native to Eurasia, North America, Southern Africa, and Australia.

Favourite Environment

A hardy, vigorous, easy-to-grow perennial her with a spreading habit. Full sun, part shade. Keep it in control - pick only the younger fresher leaves for best effect, this also keeps it bushy. Cut out old woody stems now and again.

Drinking
Preference

Mint plants like water, but waterlogged soil can rot their roots. Water your mint during dry spells to keep the soil lightly moist. Maintaining lightly moist but not soggy soil is the ideal environment for mint. If the soil feels dry about an inch down, give your plant some water. If you notice the foliage of your mint wilting, that's typically a sign the plant needs more moisture.
