Mints are vigorous perennials that thrive in light soil with good drainage. Due to this they are always best grown in pots. Most will grow in sun or partial shade; the variegated types may require some protection from direct sun. Mulch to keep damp and cool. Frequent harvesting is the key to keeping mint plants at their best. Young leaves have more flavour and can be harvested as soon as it comes up in spring.
